Parent Information 

 

In The Romans are Coming! project, children will learn about what happened when the Romans came to Wales and order events on a Roman timeline. Studying the ancient site of Caerleon will help them to understand what life was like in a Roman fort. They’ll develop the skills of a Roman soldier and learn about the life of Tadius, who lived at Caerleon 2000 years ago. They’ll learn to read Roman numerals, taste a variety of Roman dishes and extend their vocabulary by learning Latin words. Their creative skills will improve as they make jewellery, mosaics and lamps, and they will design a Roman aqueduct. They’ll also meet the Welsh hero, Caradog, and learn about his amazing story. They’ll look at the events that led to the end of Roman rule and learn about the Roman legacy in Wales.
