Oak Class have been finding out about the creation of Rome and Roman Civilisation. They began by learning the story of Romulus and Remus.

This narrative depicting elements of Roman society and the expansion of the Roman Empire shows the structure their history lessons followed. The sequence of lessons involved revisiting previous learning before moving on to the next part of the narrative, allowing the children to build a clear, chronological knowledge of Roman history.

Towards the end of this topic, the children were able to use their knowledge to create first a fact file about the Romans and later an in depth fact file about the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar. The children studied Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar in English this term to help consolidate their understanding of the Roman Empire.

The final element of this topic is linked to geography as Oak Class explored the physical geography of Pompeii through a study of Vesuvius.
