Romans invasion of Britain

Julius Caeser first came to Britain on August 26th 55BC, but it was almost 100 years later when the Romans actually conquered Britain in AD43. Before the Romans invaded Britain the Celts lived there, the Celts were ruled by Kings and Cheifs and there were lots of different tribes.  Even though the Celts fought together against the Romans, they would often fight against each other to gain food and land.

 

I am am looking forward to learning lots more about Romans and Celts in class and I’m really excited to visit the wall and see lots of other stuff when we go to Chester.

I think the Roman houses were very well built, because they were the first to use some cement in their houses. I wonder if they would have known that we would be digging up some of their houses still today!

I would like to live in a Roman house because they had a swimming pool in the middle of their houses. The swimming pool was called an impluvium. The Romans liked to see the garden from their dining room. It would make me feel nice and relaxed, ready for bed! I would also like to have a mosaic on my floor, like them.

I wouldn`t like to live in a Roman house because they were all open and I would feel all cold, especially when winter came!

 

Would you like to have lived in a Roman house?

The romans

The Romans were here long then we’ve ever been.The Romans fought other country’s to make a bigger empire to take over more country’s or to take other the entire world but that never happened.

Then the Romans atempted to take over britian , they tyres twice but failed both. The next emporer was called emporer claudius he got so mad he had 45000 Romans solders to take over Britain.

 

 

The Romans arrive in Manchester

In AD 69 the Romans arrived in the north  of England.  The Roman Governor, Agricola built a fort from turf and timber around AD 79.  It was named Mamucium.  Known today as Manchester.

The name Mamucium is Latin for ” breast shaped hill” after the shape of the rocky hill it was built on.  You can find a statue of the Roman Governor Agricola in the centre of Manchester outside the Town Hall.

The mermaid and dragon

” Grandma when do you think it’s going to stop?” cried Patcy. Patcy could hear lots of different sounds outside.  She heard a loud crash , Booms and a bash.

Her grandma replied ” I don’t know my dear I hope no one’s hurt.”

” Me to.” replied Patcy. ” Why is they such thing as a war”. Asked Patcy. Patcy lived in Scotland so she had an accent.

” Because there’s nasty people.” Sighed grandmar. Before dad left he gave her a charm which had a dragon and mermaid on it. Every minute more and more bombs went off. So nana decided to put patcy as an evacuee.

The lion and the unicorn

I am enjoying learning about The Lion and the Unicorn.

So far I have learnt that Lenny has been evacuated and these girls are bullying him.

My favourite part in the book is when he tries to run away and a unicorn comes out of the woods and then he falls asleep curled in the unicorns wings.

I can’t wait to finish the story.
