We went to a Roman schools workshop at the Hancock museum yesterday where we had to think about how we know so much about the Romans and look at some objects to decide what we would take to a party for the Emperor Hadrian. We also spent time looking around the Roman displays in the museum. There is a large Roman area with a display of Hadrian's Wall which is obviously of local significance.
So to follow up from this we read our library book this morning and looked at some pictures of the Colosseum online.
Harry made a Roman Soldier spoon puppet from a kit he received as a birthday present and was really interested so he also completed some pages of his warrior dressing sticker book. This included Hannibal's army so I read him the chapter of our history book 'A Little History of The World' relating to Hannibal and the Romans.
