To be the best me that I can be

Year 3 / Year 4


Welcome to Key Stage Two! 

Welcome to Year 3/4!


Term 5 and 6


This term we will be looking at the expansion of the Roman Empire and the impact this had on Britain. The children will be learning about how the Roman Army's organisation contributed to their successful invasion of Britain in 43AD and all the way through until the collapse of the Roman Empire. Children will be learning about Roman lifestyle, clothes, food, social hierarchy, jobs and life as a Roman soldier through various sources of information including both non-fiction and fiction texts including The Thieves of Ostia and Roman Diary. 


Alongside this, the children explore Roman diet and compare this to modern day recipes. The WOW event this term will be a visit to the Roman Baths where they will take part in workshops and experience the wonder of the Roman Baths in Bath. Seeing these remains up close will bring the topic to life!
