The Romans


During the autumn term Year 4 have been learning about the Romans.


We have learnt all about who the Romans were, where they came from and why they were such an important people in History.
Some highlights were:
  • Studying Roman shields and designing our own.
  • Pretending we were Roman soldiers and making and marching in different formations.
  • Learning the story of Boudicca and her revolt against the Romans.
  • Drawing portraits of Boudicca.
  • Learning about the Celts and the difference between their strategies and those the Romans used.
