We really enjoyed our Roman Topic last half term, especially learning about the famous heroine ‘Boudicca’!
We were able to link lots of our topic and literacy work to the Romans and Boudicca and particularly enjoyed creating the play – we hope you had as much fun watching the play as much as we did making it!
