In English we started to learn about instructions. We were learning about ‘How to dress like a Roman solider’.

Have a look at this video clip. What items of clothing can you see?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1oknxflbdnI&feature=youtu.be

Read through these example instructions. These have the steps in chronological (time) order.

How to become the most exceptional Roman Solider

Equipment:

  • A pointy javelin
  • A polished helmet
  • A razor-sharp Gladius  
  • A crimson tunic
  • Leather sandals
  • Metallic armour
  • A robust shield
  • Your powerful leader

Have you ever wanted to become a mighty Roman solider? These instructions will tell you step by step how to become one! Make sure you follow each stage carefully to ensure you survive the bloody battle.

Method:

  1. To begin with, put the crimson tunic over your head. This will protect your body from the heavy armour.
  2. Second of all, you will need to prepare the finest pieces of armour. Place the metal jacket on your broad shoulders. This will stop you being injured by those pesky Celts!
  3. Thirdly, tie the leather sandals onto your feet. The studs will ensure you don’t slip over in the mud.
  4. Immediately, attach your belt around your waist. This will make a jangling noise to scare off the enemy.
  5. After that, take your sturdy helmet and place it on your head. This will protect your precious brain, which is crucial to you winning the battle!
  6. Next, you need to make sure you have your important weapons. Pick up your Gladius and put it into your holder. As well, grasp your shield close to your body ready for the tortoise formation.
  7. Now, make sure you have your pointy javelin that you can use to aim at the evil Celts, as well as your important equipment so you have the essentials for survival.
  8. Finally, ensure you listen carefully to your superior leader and follow all the instructions you are given.

If you have followed all these steps correctly, you are now ready to become a part of the impressive Roman army. 

In maths, we were converting between cm and mm. Watch the video Equivalent lengths mm and cm and have a go at the activities:
