A corridor invasion


To round off our Ruthless Romans topic we are creating fabulous corridor displays to go outside our classrooms and showcase the range of wonderful work we have produced since September.



We are particularly proud of our Roman shields which we have designed and made over several lessons.

We started off by looking at historical designs, exploring common colour schemes, patterns and emblems. We used our analysis of these designs to generate our own ideas, combining a range of patterns, tones and styles. 


The next step was to cut out and paint our shield shapes, before adding details and embellishments using a mixture of media.  We will then be reflecting on the successes of our final shields, and also evaluating techniques which were less effective to improve future projects.

We will be looking out for some troublesome Ancient Brittons to test out our designs in battle!
