Our IPC topic for this term is called ‘Roman Rule.’ Using primary and secondary sources of information, we will learn about whom the Romans were and where they came from as well as identifying features of Roman entertainment, Roman gladiators, the Roman Army and the main Emperors of Rome. By the end of the topic, we will understand the factors that led to the fall of the Roman Empire, identified how the Romans have influenced our lives today, have investigated the significance of Mosaic Art in Roman times and to experiment with this technique and have explored the impact of Roman beliefs in relation to Roman Gods.
