Roman Shields

After learning about the power and importance of the Roman army we considered what it would be like to be a Roman soldier. Then, inspired by the designs of shields from the past we combined our DT, Art and history skills, designing and making our own Roman Shields. Finally, we re-enacted a Roman battle, recreating the 'Tortoise formation' and imagining how Roman Soldiers may have felt as they went in to battle all those years ago.
