Revolting Romans

What did the Romans do for us 180 Roman Empire Clip Art Illustrations & Clip Art - iStock

This term we will continue to develop our historical skills through learning about the Romans. We will be looking where the Romans fit on a history timeline and look at primary and secondary sources to start to question what life was like in the past.  Once we’ve explored what life was like in Roman times we will then compare this to our life today.

Following on from our  learning about the Romans invading Britain and why they did this,  this week are answering the question “What was a consequence of the invasions?”.  As historians we are going to use wall carvings (Primary sources) and  pictures (secondary sources) to see if we can work out what happened after the romans invaded and how the Celts felt about these invasions.

My Maths!

Each week your maths teacher will set you homework on MyMaths linked to your learning. This is always set on a Friday and due on a Tuesday. You can attempt the activity as many times as you like to improve your score.


Seesaw is an online platform that allows children to complete tasks at home on the computer. It is also a brilliant resource for allowing teachers to share with you the work your child has been doing in school.
