Ready for attack!

Form 4 have been re-creating classic Roman battle formations.

Form 4 are learning about the Romans in Humanities this half term. They have looked at when and where the Romans came from, how they got to England and where they fit within British history. 

This week they have been looking at the lives of Roman soldiers and had great fun trying to recreate some of the battle formations used.

The pictures show their attempts at the defensive tortoise and the wedge for attack. After that the children imagined they were Roman soldiers and wrote letters home to their families to explain what life was like.
