Roman Laurel Crowns
We have been studying Roman Emperors in class. We noticed that they have a different type of crown. This is called a Laurel Leaf Crown and some of the emperors in Ancient Rome would wear these. So we decided to make our own. Don’t they look amazing!
We wrote reports about how to keep teeth healthy!
Equality have been looking at the digestive system. We have made and labelled our own models to show you how it work!
Sound Recording with Mr Cook
We've had the fantastic opportunity to work with Mr Cook, our school music teacher to create a Romans Rap. Click below to listen:
We also performed poems about the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in Pompeii, which you can hear below:
We learnt the different symbols for Roman Numerals and used them to complete this multiplication grid.
After our unit on place value, we got really quick at ordering numbers.
Equality Class have been reading Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit. We wrote our own volcano poems using pairs of rhyming words.
Romans Topic - Dress Up Day
Equality class enjoyed dressing up as Romans on Roman day. We dressed up as soldiers, slaves, Roman gods and goddesses. In our class bubbles we watch the Rotten Romans movie and found answers to many of the questions we had asked about Roman houses, soldiers, inventions and so on. We also learned that Boudicca, queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe, led a brave uprising against the Roman invasion.
Equality have been designing and making their very own Roman jewellery! We used pasta, string, card and beautiful metallic paints. Look how amazing they are!
