This half term our topic is the Romans and we will be learning about them through the eyes of a Roman!! Each topic group will take on a character from the Roman times either: Solider, Emperor, Gladiator, Civilian or Slave. They will then answer the key questions from their characters perspectives, so across the class there will be a range of viewpoints, which will enable the children to compare similarities and differences between ways of life. Below are the key questions for this topic which could take anything from a few days or up to 2 weeks to cover:
- Who am I?
- What was it like being a Solider/Emperor/Civilian/Gladiator/ Slave?
- How did Boudicca’s battle affect me?
- What was my legacy?
- What have we learn about the Romans?
