Welcome to Class 3 and Class 4!
Our Curriculum Project for Spring 2 2020!
I am a warrior
We are brave, powerful warriors, and we will meet in battle!
This half term we’ll research Celtic and Roman warriors and write soliloquies as soldiers. Using different source materials, we’ll investigate the Roman Empire. We will design and make shields, and practise our attacking and defending skills. The Celtic warrior queen, Boudicca, will inspire us to create stories, models and artwork. Using maps, globes and information books, we’ll compare Britain (the home of the Celts) and Rome (the home of the Romans).
