Maths

English

For the past two weeks in school, we have been learning about the figurine of Capricorn, a Roman object found beneath the earth. Read the fact sheet about the Capricorn to remind you what it is, where it was found and what historians think about it. Make some notes to use tomorrow!

Art

Can you make a shadow puppet and then make up a short play about it?

You could use card, such as an old cereal box.

This you tube clip shows you the science behind a shadow puppet.

The next clip is a shadow puppet making tutorial. You can keep your puppets simple shapes or you can develop them adding movement with split pin s, adding colour with coloured cellophane and adding pattern with doilies.

History

See resources and read the legend of Romulus and Remus - the birth of Rome.

Follow up by drawing a picture of the famous Roman statue of the wolf and baby twins, or draw a cartoon strip of the story. You might want to write a playscript or act out the story.
