We are Golden and we SPARKLE

Monday Romans Day resources

Our topic this half-term is the Rowdy Romans and we will be exploring the impact that they had on the British Empire and how they influenced British culture, technology and our landscape. We will learn about how they successfully invaded; about examples of British resistance such as through Boudicca, and we will reflect upon how the Romans have impacted our lives today. We will take on the role of historians to deduce and infer Roman ruins and artefacts.


Over the course of today, you will be taking part in a range of activities to discover more about the Romans. To find out your tasks for today, have a look at the task outline poster below.
