Class 3 – 2020: What have the Romans done for us?

What have the Romans done for us

Welcome to a new term and a new decade! Year 3 have jumped straight into our new theme, ‘What have the Romans done for us?’ by participating in a history trail around our school grounds so that we can find out about how the Romans came to be in England, and about the Celt civilisation that existed before and during the Roman invasion. 

Through this theme of learning we will be finding out all about Roman Britain and the legacy that the Romans left behind and will be learning some key vocabulary:

Amphitheatre, Aqueduct, Boudicca, Bath House, Century, Centurion, Citizen, Emperor, Forum, Gladiator, Julius Casaer, Toga, Villa as an example of just some!

We are looking forward to our exciting visit to the Roman Baths not far away in Bath just after February half term where we will be able to have a first hand experience of a key factor of Roman life.

Keep an eye on our blog to see an update of what we have learnt throughout the term as well as images from our day trip.

Roman baths


Visit to Aquae Sulis – The Roman Baths. February 25th 2020.

Class 3 had a fantastic time exploring a key Roman site. We were amazed to see the baths and learn how they were used and worked. Look at our photographs from the day to find out more about our experience.

After studying Roman soldiers, we spent time researching what they would have worn and used in the Roman Army. We designed and then made our own shields which have symbols on them that are special to our unique personalities.
