Year 2 - The Romans

Hidden Histories in Britain

 

During the History Learning Journey, children will explore and uncover the real, rich history our children deserve to learn. They will examine forgotten stories of men and women in history and examine how they have shaped Britain today.

They will explore the Roman Empire and what it was like for all members of society at those times as well as explore the events that led to invasion of Britain. They will study why the Romans deemed Britain as desirable to their Empire as well as evaluate the legacy the Romans left behind.

 

For more information, see the Learning Journey Letter and the Knowledge Organiser below.

 

Celebrating our Learning!

 

During this History Learning Journey, children have investigated and interpreted the past.  Children have learnt about key Black British men and women and their contributions to Britain.  They have explored the features of the past, including ideas, beliefs, attitudes and experiences of men, women and children during the period of time they lived.  Children have been able to understand how and why the significant person they studied has impacted their lives today.

 

Every class has been taking part in our 'Poetry Slam' competition, with learning inspired by a significant black poet.  The children chose and voted for a winning poem, learnt it as a class and performed it for you to watch at home!

As a year group, the children have created a news broadcast to showcase the historical learning over the last 5 weeks.  

Proud Black British History

During the Autumn Term, our Learning Journey will be 'Proud Black British History'.  All year groups will be learning about a significant historical figure and the impact they had or exploring themselves, their class and their community.  All the significant figures were pioneers and championed equal rights and opportunities for Black people. 

 

In Year 2, they will be finding out more about Dr. Harold Moody, was a doctor who campaigned for equal employment rights, including the right for Black people to become officers in the Armed Forces.

 

Please see the Learning Journey Overview and Knowledge Organiser below for further information, home learning activities and helpful resources to promote discussion at home.
