Autumn Term 2: Emperors and Empires

Roman battle formations!


This afternoon we learned all about roman battle formations and practised them in a re-enactment using our own handmade Roman shields (scutums). We learned the latin words for left and right and used them when marching round the playground. We then learned about the testudo (tortoise) formation and put it into practice to protect us from enemy missiles!
