Roaming Romans

Hail Year 5!
This half term in our Roaming Romans project we will be learning all about the Roman Empire, the Roman way of life and thinking about the impact the Romans had on our lives today.
Living in Roman times your life could’ve been very different depending on who you were. The life of a Roman Emperor was very different than that of a normal Roman. Can you find out anything about the everyday  lives of Romans; where they lived, what they wore, the foods they ate or the jobs they did? Watching this clip may help.

    54BC ATTACK!
    In 54bc the Romans invaded Britain once again. Julius Caesar this time led over 5 Roman legions to attack the Celtic tribe. This time for the Romans it was harder because they had to fight in the sea which they where not used to. But still they where determined to win the battle and not fall down.

    •The Romans lived in Rome, a city in the centre of the country Italy.
    •According to the Roman legend, Romulus was the founder of Rome.Romulus and his twin brother Remus were the sons of the god Mars. When they were very young they were abandoned by the banks of the river Tiber and left to fend for themselves. The boys were later found by a shepherd who raised them. The boys grew up to be very strong and clever and they decided to build a town on the spot where the shepherd had found them. They named their town Rome.
    • The biggest battle was fought on the banks of the river Medway, close to Rochester. It went on for two days before the Celtic tribes retreated.

    On Wednesday the 8th of November we went to the Ribchester Roman museum in Lancashire it was really fun. We did a workshop above the museum with a person named Patrick who talked to us about the Romans and old Roman pottery , coins and also weapons and armour. Some of the things we got to hold wear and handle. We got to wear the cavelrymens armour and also just the armour that they just wore in the normal battles. We got to wear two types of helmets called the parade helmet and the helmet with the crescent hair on top as well we got to hold some weapons like the javelin and the swords we also got to hold a shield. Whilst we were there we passed round remaining pieces of pottery and there was also Roman sandals and bags. Down stairs which was the actual museum there was Roman artefacts and stone sculptures of the Romans at battles. Above each object there was a factual paragraph about each thing and what they are. I think it is a perfect place for people who are with children and are looking for a museum that is quiet. Our lass loved it and I bet that the next year five will love it to . When you walk in there is also a gift shop for people who would like to remember the museum I didn’t get anything but I will still remember the trip because it was so good. The museum contains lots of interesting things that I didn’t know but now I do there was lots of different things about was they used things for and also jewellery that they wore. I was interested in how they had heating and how they produced light to see because in them days the electric light bulb wasn’t invented. During the time we spent there I learnt everything I wanted to know. When we were there we didn’t just go to the museum we also went to see some Roman ruin remains we saw the granitary remains and also the bath remains.At the end we went on the park for the remaining time we had left. We thanked Patrick who ran the workshop and let us come to the museum in the first place and also thank you to the teachers who organised the trip. My favourite part was the quiz and learning new information.

That is my knowledge about the romans.
