Year 4

 

This term, we have travelled back two thousand years in time to the Ancient Rome. We began by studying the legend of Romulus and Remus and how Rome began and then learnt about the next thousand years as Rome became one of the most powerful empires in history.

We imagined what it would be like to have a job during these ruthless times. What would we be – gladiator, soldier, merchant?

In Art, we have made 3D portraits of our friends – using pencil sketches, photography and then clay – to create a sculpture similar to those that the wealthy Romans had made for them all those years ago.
