Summer Term 2019

spring and autumn pages



This term, our topic is the Romans and we are very excited about finding out about why and how they invaded Britain. We will also be looking at the impact they had on Britain and at Boudicca's Rebellion (not everyone was happy with them!).

In our D.T. lessons, we will be preparing some Roman dishes. In our art lessons, we will be exploring how Romans made mosaics and will design and make our own.
