Year 5 - The Romans


In Winchester Class this term we have been looking closely at the Romans.

In our literacy and history lessons we have been researching Boudicca (who was also known as Boudica, Boudiccea or Boudicea.) We have learnt that she was a Celtic Queen who lived nearly 2,000 years ago when Britain was part of the Roman Empire.

Boudicca married King Prasudagus, who was King of the Iceni Tribe. They lived in a part of England now known as East Anglia. (Peterborough is part of East Anglia!)

We have used hot-seating, props and filming to help us get into the role of Queen Boudicca, the Iceni warriors and the Roman soliders. Take a look at some of the pictures and video below to see us in character…
