Welcome to Rome!

What a busy term Primary 4 have had! We have been working hard to produce outstanding work for our Roman topic. As a class, we decided what we would like to find out about the Romans. Each group became class experts in areas such as gods and goddesses, Roman numerals, gladiators and chariots as well as Roman emperors and clothing and jewellry. The groups spent an afternoon researching their chosen speciality and were questioned by the rest of the class.

We began by learning about why the Romans came to Britian and what Scotland looked like at that time. We then found out about the Roman Army and their weapons and armour. As part of our art work we made two life size Roman soldiers - one to guard our classroom door and one to remain in our class.

During technology time Mrs Bryson set us a chariot challenge. We had to design and build a chariot in accordance with the success criteria. Some were more successful than others!

Our gods and goddesses experts told us all about their chosen area which we found very interesting! We each chose a god or goddess and made an acrostic poems and tracing.

We had lots of fun finding out about Roman numerals! We made tablets out of clay and inscribed our name and date of birth (in Roman numerals of course!) in it.

As well as all this art and technology work we produced many pieces of quality writing. We used our imagination to write letters home from Roman soldiers and became newspaper reporters covering the devastating eruption at Pompeii.

We were able to show all our hard work off to our friends and family at the open afternoon on Friday 27th March. Our visitors were very impressed with our classroom and all the work we have done. Mrs Bryson says that the quality of our work has been excellent this term and we need to keep this up! We should be very proud of ourselves!
