TOPIC: RISE OF THE MACHINES

Our Inventions For The Future

We used our imagination and knowledge of the world to design a machine that would help us and our world.

TOPIC: THE ROMANS

This term, we became Romans.

The Battle of Watling Street

We imagined what the battle between the Romans and Boudicca's Celts would have been like, and wrote news reports about it.

Roman Mosaics

We created our own Roman mosaics, but tried to create a pattern that had at least one line of symmetry.

Roman Clothing

We attempted to dye materials using natural colourings in the same manner as the Romans would have done.

Archaeological Dig

We pretended we were archaeologists and excavated and area of sand to find some historical artefacts. We then used our knowledge of the Romans to attempt to identify who the artefacts would have belonged to.
