Roman Britain - Boudicca, villas and mosaics

We have continued our investigations into the Romans and their occupation of Britain. 


We found out about Boudicca who was the leader of the Iceni tribe. She was based near Thetford. She was a very fierce, brave woman who fought the Romans.




We also looked at how the Romans lived and made models of the type of houses, or villas, they built in Britain. Here are some examples of our work...







The Romans decorated their floors with beautiful mosaics and we have also been having a go at making some ourselves.



We planned the patterns in our topic books first and then made them using glass tiles. We'll be grouting them soon.

Aren't they gorgeous?


Which is your favourite pattern?
