We were lucky enough to spend 30 minutes with a visiting yoga teacher, as part of our PSHE and mindfulness lessons. We learnt about the importance of relaxation and completed moves including 2-person downward facing dog. We all felt calm and ready for the rest of our day afterwards.
We used the bibles to find the teaching of Jesus and begin to answer the question – ‘Why is the bible important for Christians today?’
We have used maps of Europe to focus on the spread of the Roman Empire between 210BC and 117AD. This allowed us to see how much of Europe became Roman territory over these 328 years and showed the strength of the Roman army.
What impact did the Romans coming to Britain have on our lives today? Historians suggest that the, ‘Roman invasion of Britain’ was the most significant event ever to happen to the British Isles. It affected our language, our culture, our geography, our architecture and even the way we think. How can we prove this? Nearly 2000 years ago , the Romans came to Britain and changed our country. Throughout our topic, we will explore what life was like in Ancient Rome and investigate how the Roman Empire spread and eventually conquered Britain in 43AD. We will look for evidence of the Romans all around us and consider life in Britain before and after the arrival of the Romans.
To begin our topic on the Romans, Year 4 went to Dover Museum. We had the chance to look at Roman Artefacts, including sandels, oil lamps and roof tiles, we then created Roman soldier heads out of clay. Once the clay is dry, we will be painting our Roman Soldiers to give them extra detail.
