Year 4 began their topic on the Romans this week. To get a sense of when the Roman Empire was in power, the children constructed timelines to place the Roman Empire alongside other major eras/ events. They had to consider the length of the strips they used to match the length of the event/era and also had to place them at the correct point on the timeline based on the dates they were given. They were then able to compare the events and discuss which happened before after and at the same time.
