Year 4 Roman Research

Year 3

We have been continuing our study of the Romans in Year 4. The children have been looking at what type of clothing the Romans wore, and why it suited their lifestyle and needs. We have all designed and made a selection of Roman style sandals. We asked Year 4 to think about how the design could be improved for modern day living.

Our study of Romans in Britain has focussed on the life of Boudicia. We have been trying to find out what type of character she was, and what inspired her to become a Roman leader. Working in small groups, Year 4 have brainstormed a series of questions that we would like to have asked Boudica. We have tried to imagine what it must have felt like to be the Roman Emperor of Britain, and what challenges you might face.
