The Romans

For the Summer Term, we are diving into the world of the Ancient Romans and what they left behind after invading Britain that has influenced our lives today! Here are a range of ideas and website links to help you find some great information while staying safe at home. Good luck, adventurers!


In English, we are looking at a range of Roman myths to learn more about these fascinating people and where they believed they originated. Lots of the myths include the crazy shenanigans of the Roman Gods and heroes and this is a great place to start our learning. The Romans worshipped hundreds of gods before Christianity became a religion, and they had gods that looked after very specific things. Can you find one that is your favourite? My favourite is Minerva, the goddess of wisdom and learning!
