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!

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.
