 Year 4 have started to examine the Romans. Our big question for this topic is: 

Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them?


In order to help us answer this questions we will look to answer these questions first:


  • What is it like to be invaded and which countries have been invaded recently?
  • Who were the Romans and would they have enjoyed coming to Britain?
  • Would you prefer to be a Gladiator or a Premiership footballer?
  • What did the Romans do for us? LC5 How could you be as fit as a Roman?
  • Why did the Romans need to build forts?
  • Who was Boudica and why did she become so famous?
  • Can you create a working model of a Roman weapon?
  • Who were the famous Romans and what do we know about them?


Children should attempt to research these questions and create a fact file answering these questions.
