Term 1 has seen us delve into the ancient cultures of Greece and the Roman Empire. We started the topic building models of famous Roman and Greek buildings and, after learning a lot about the lifestyles of Greek and Roman families, Greek democracy, hierarchy in Greek and Roman societies, mythology and Mediterranean geography, we actually travelled to visit an ancient Roman settlement at Caerleon in Wales. We enjoyed a day in sun, learning about the remarkable site and about the lives of the many people who lived and worked there, nearly 2000 years ago.
We had the pleasure of spending a day at Bristol Cathedral as part of the international Big Draw Festival. We explored geometry and shape, and enjoyed being creative in this fantastic historic building.
