We loved learning about the Romans in term 3- particularly learning about the soldiers, weapons and fighting the vicious Celts, but also learning about how the Roman Empire spread, what life would be like as a Roman citizen and what they brought to Britain.

Did you know that the Romans introduced:

- Sewage systems

- Proper roads

- Central heating

- Glass

- Stinging nettles (yes, they were to blame!)

The children loved learning about the Romans so much, many of them wanted to carry on. Perhaps they could learn more at home, or even explore Roman life in Folkestone.

Here are some of 5T enjoying or drama session (Kic Theatre) where we built boats and Roman forts:

Now we are in term 4 and we have been doing a local study, looking at how Folkestone has changed as a result of the Channel Tunnel.

Eurotunnel

We have produced some great written work, writing balanced arguments for whether the Channel Tunnel should or should not have been built and the children came up with some great ideas.

We have also found it interesting to learn about many of the features which Folkestone used to offer, but are no longer here, as well as many positive improvements on the town.
