Welcome to Elephants Class
Emperors and Empires
This project teaches children about the history and structure of ancient Rome and the Roman Empire, including a detailed exploration of the Romanisation of Britain.
PE: Roman Soldier Style
We are learning about why the Romans were so successful. They were:
Ambitious, Organised and Worked as a Team. Is this the secret of their success? This week, our PE was based on the ways a Roman Army might have trained how to fight and move as a unit.
In Roman times, the people were represented by the Senate. We want the Elephants Class voice to be heard in the running of our school, so we have elected our members of the school ‘senate’ – The School Council. Many of our class citizens made powerful speeches as to why they should represent the Elephants; they all made a fantastic impression on the voters. However, three stood out and won the election. Many congratulations to our three new School Councillors.
How far did the Roman Empire Spread?
To answer this question we first needed to make sure we understand the terms ‘countries’ and ‘continents’. Then we can use maps and atlases to find out how far the Empire spread and, why it stopped expanding. Listen to the "Continents and Oceans" song to help your geographical knowledge.
