This half term we have worked hard to try and experience Roman lives.  As part of these we looked at the lives of Roman soldiers.  We then created a shield which was in scale to the ones they used in real life.  These were difficult to carry and handle despite them being made of card.  We decided that being a Roman soldier must have been very hard and some of the class are certain this isn’t a job that they would have wanted to do.

In PE this term we have taken part in lots of fun activities with our new sports teacher Mike.  He has helped us develop our skills which we will continue to work on over the year.  It has been great to see the children having so much fun in sports and watching them learn through participation

As part of our Romans Topic this term, we have done lots of research. We found information on how they made their shields, what tools they used, what they looked like.  Cedar class have made their own shields using cardboard, newspaper and string. We bent the cardboard to make it curved like a Roman shield, then we layered Papier Mache on the cardboard to make it stronger, we are now at our finally stage of painting the shields with our own designs.

Every Wednesday afternoon, Cedar Class have a PE lesson with a sports coach. We do warm ups to get ready for our session then take part in team games. We have really enjoyed our lessons so far and find them great fun!
