Spring 1: Venimus, Vidimus, Vicimus

 

This term the children will become historians and discover what life was back in the time of Ancient Rome. They will use a variety of different sources to research and evaluate information before making conclusions based on what they have found. The topic will involve a visit to Clifton Park, Rotherham where the children will enhance their knowledge of Romans as well as learning about life as a museum employee. The children will then use this to create their own museum in Woodhouse Village for parents and members of the public to come and enjoy.
