In response to excavation of the Roman artefacts, children will learn about the Roman Empire and its effect and legacy on Britain. The children will gain an understanding of the role Rome had over Britain and its influence on the modern day. Through learning about how the Romans were able to rule such a large Empire, the children will consider the life of a Roman soldier in Britain by exploring letters written home by soldiers from Hadrian ’s Wall and composing their own. Through exploring the Roman ruling and justice systems, children will begin to understand how our country is run today. Through role play and narrative writing, the children will then recreate one of the significant battles between the Roman army and the Celts to understand the power and influence of significant people of this period in history. They will then understand why the Roman Empire ceased in Britain and the influence and legacy the left behind.
