I came. I saw. I conquered.
This topic, we will be studying the Romans. Some of the activities that we have to look forward to are below;
We will be researching the infamous Julius Caesar! We will have a look at who he was, why he was so famous and how he became the most powerful man on earth during his reign!
We will be learning which countries were taken over by the Romans and how they completely overwhelmed the Celts. We will look at where it all started and where the demise of the empire began.
We will also be using our DT skills to design and create an intricate Roman brooch, ready to wear to our Roman party!
Our topic will end with an exciting Roman party!
A quick joke; How did the Roman Empire get cut in half?
With a pair of Caesars!
Hubble bubble, toil and trouble!
This half term, we will be looking at Potions during our topic work.
We will be creating pieces of artwork by turning gases into a liquid.
Later into the topic, we will be creating our own chocolates using Willy Wonka's 'Love Dust'!
The Love Dust has arrived! We have managed to design our chocolates, melt the chocolate down and create some delicious love hearts! Here's some photos of the process and don't forget to check out the gallery to see the finished chocolates!
