Romans in Robins!

posted 13 Jan 2020, 04:25 by Kelly Lovick

Welcome back! I hope you had a good break and are all looking forward to an exciting Spring term. 

This term our big question is How did the Romans influence our lives?

We will think about how the Roman Empire began, the everyday lives of Romans and the legacy that they have left behind.

We kicked off our topic on Friday with a visit from a Roman soldier! He showed us an informative PowerPoint and talked about the body armour and weapons that he might have used in battle.

We played a Roman Rummy game to introduce us to Roman Gods, Goddesses and Famous buildings.

After break, we made timelines showing different important dates in the history of Ancient Rome.

The highlight of the day was when we picked up our shields and spears and marched out to the playground! We learnt how to march in formation and to create a defence. Luckily we managed to defend ourselves against an attack from the teachers!

We ended the day by learning how to throw our spears like javelins.
