    Eagles have been making some fantastic Roman shields as part of their homework this term.

    We started our new topic by becoming archaeologists. We excavated our block to discover an artefact which was a clue to our new topic: The Romans are Coming!

    These were our archaeological finds!! Do you know what they all are?

    Our topic in Terms 1 and 2 is...

    The Romans are Coming!

     

    In History, we will be looking at the Romans, the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain.
