We started our history lessons off with a lesson on ‘Chronological Concurrence’ so we could see exactly where our topic of the Romans took place against British & World History. We looked at how the Roman Empire span from BC to AD and also studied how timelines worked. We also briefly looked at moving time maps to look at the countries that the Romans conquered over time. Our main activity consisted of ordering a timeline which very cleverly included all the historical topics you cover from KS1 to UKS2.
Here is part of our history display showing the timeline of the Roman power over the world and GB. Children are free to grab books to look at Roman life.
We have been using Google Earth to locate Europe, look at the countries that make up Europe and look specifically where Italy is located within. We then looked at where Rome was… the children even went one step further and found Pompeii & Mt Vesuvius as we have been covering a story based on this in English. Great map skills 🗺
Swim stars - first swimming session with school went amazingly I’m so proud of Green 2 for trying their hardest! The above children got certificates for achieving 5 & 10 metres on their front or back! 🏊🏼♀️
In the first of our R.E. Lessons we discussed inspirational people and how world leaders, sport stars, entertainment stars & how religious leaders would inspire different people.
