This term are topic is the Romans and we decided to find out all about them. So to find out, we read many reference books and wrote questions about the things we want to know. Then, we organised our questions by using a Tree Diagram.

Welcome to Dolphins Class
Our Topic this term: What did the Romans do for us?
The Roman influence is in our everyday lives and the children will answer five key questions this term:
Why did the Romans come to Britain?
What made the Romans so powerful?
How did the Romans live?
Who didn’t want the Romans in Britain?
Why did Hadrian build a wall?
We will investigate how the Roman Empire started through the legend of Romulus and Remus and how the Roman Empire spread so quickly over the greater part of the known world. A study of how the Romans lived, worked and played will show how many of their innovations are in our lives today. Although many Britons welcomed the Romans into Britain, Boudicca's Iceni tribe gave resistance. The children will find out why this group resisted and how successful they were. Throughout the term, we will consider the legacy of the Roman Empire; roads, language, plumbing and democracy.
