Roman Battle Formations

 

During the Roman Empire’s rule, they invaded and took over many countries around the world thanks to their powerful army. We have been learning about the tactics they used and have been getting ourselves into the role by practising the different formations. Take a look at the pictures and ask your children about the situations the different formations would be used.

Teamwork makes the dream work 

 

Working together in small groups, 5M have created cartoon strips to familiarise themselves with the Roman myth of ‘Romulus and Remus’. They shared out jobs of scribe, illustrator and project manager who summarised events. There were fantastic team work skills shown with everyone getting stuck in.

Virtual Reality Visit

 

A big thank you to Oliver from Prime VR for bringing Rome to life today.  From a birds eye view, we could look all around present day Rome as if we were really there! With the help of VR headsets, we were able to go back in time to the Collosseum and witness the brave gladiators fighting for their lives.  Roaming through an ancient town, we were able to see what life would be like if we lived 2000 years ago.
