What did the Romans do for Britain?

What did the Romans do for Britain?

As part of our learning this term, we will be focusing on The Roman Empire. We will be finding out about the Roman invasions of Celtic Britain and the relationships between the Celts and the Romans.  We will also be learning about the laws, living conditions and Roman architecture.

We will learn about how the Romans have had a lasting influence on Britain today. We will be visiting the city of Chester to learn about the walled city and take a look at the amipitheatre. Hopefully will get a guided tour from a Roman soldier, whilst we are there!
