Year 4: Romans

Our topic in Year 4 this half term has been the Romans. 

Following on from the summer term when the pupils learnt about the impact of the Roman invasion on Britain, we have focused on different aspects of Ancient Roman life. First, we wrote instructions for how to become a successful gladiator followed by a diary entry of a 'Rudiarius' (a gladiator who has won enough battles to earn his freedom!) Then, we studied the story 'Escape from Pompeii' from which we  wrote a setting description and a story ending about Mount Vesuvius' eruption. Finally, we learnt about Boudicca, a brave Celt queen who revolted against Roman rule. We even found time to make our own Roman shields and try out some Roman Legion formations in the playground!  

Year 4 have worked very hard on this topic this half term.
