Welcome to Olive Class

During the Autumn term, our learning question will be, 'How did people from the past shape the world we know today?'. The children will have a History focus this term in which they will learn about Roman life. The children have the opportunity to discuss real issues such as slavery, law and punishment and justice.

Some of the questions the children want to find out about are:

How powerful were the Roman military? 

How did the Romans get their name?

Did the Romans have beds to sleep in or did they sleep outside? 

How long did the Romans rule for? 

 

The children will also be going to Chester on Monday 10th September to have a first hand experience of what life was really like in Roman times as well as be a Roman solider for the day.
