Roman battle formations

In the hall today, we practised our Roman battle formations after learning how they were experts in using their shields to protect themselves from the enemy.

One of the Romans most famous formations was the Tortoise (testudo). Testudo is the Latin word for "tortoise". The soldiers in front and sides interlocked their shields while the soldiers in the back lines placed their shields over their heads to form a protective "shell" over top of the men.  We had great fun marching in formation.

This half-term we will be discovering what life was like in Roman Britain, both for the Roman soldiers and Celts, who lived in Britain at that time.  We look forward to exploring the Roman army, arts and crafts as well as practising our marching skills!
