 The Topic for Term 6 is:

What Have The Romans Ever Done For Us? 




This term we will be looking at Roman culture, with a particular focus on entertainment (chariot racing and gladiators!), art and the supremacy of the Roman Army.

Here are some websites that you may like to take a look at to get a flavour of this topic:





We had a go at exploring some strategic Roman army moves - look out for the Testudo (the turtle), the Orb, the Wedge and the Repel Cavalry



 We will also be exploring the role of the Celtic Queen Boudicca and how she challenged the Roman Empire.
