Disaster Strikes! is our topic for the autumn. We will be studying the Roman Empire. We will make a timeline of Roman rule in mainland Europe and the UK. This will include: Julius Caesar’s attempted invasion in 55-54 BC; the Roman Empire by AD 42 and the power of its army; the successful invasion by Claudius and conquest, including Hadrian’s Wall and British resistance (Boudicca). We will also describe in detail and understand key aspects of physical geography including volcanoes and earthquakes.
