One Childhood - One Chance

Home Learning Supports Rome Learning

Home learning became Roman learning for children at Upton Juniors in Broadstairs.

As part of their term-long Revolutionary Romans topic, the Year 3 group supported their classroom learning with tasks to complete at home.

Head of Year 3 Katie Vary explained: “The tasks are designed to capture their imagination, extend their learning but also to appeal to a range of different learning styles.

“Some children might want to record their learning using technology, via music or a piece of art – for example, a number of pupils created really impressive Roman shields.

“We have been delighted by the range of homework tasks completed and our corridors have been filled with eye-catching displays of Roman armour and weapons.

“What has been most impressive is how the children have demonstrated their learning in school by creating accurate replicas and using technical vocabulary to describe the items.”

During the topic pupils looked at how the Roman Empire developed, the language, culture and heritage of the historic period, and how daily life was for civilians, the nobility and soldiers.

They also looked at a range of inventions and social developments that were an important part of this civilisation including roads, aquaducts, sanitisation and personal learning and health.

Head of School Darci Arthur added: “Home learning is an important part of our children’s education. It gives them the freedom to tackle challenges and tasks in their own way and in their own time – the results across the curriculum are impressive and are a valuable addition to a knowledge base from the classroom.”

Upton Junior School is part of the Viking Academy Trust with Ramsgate Arts Primary and Chilton Primary School, Ramsgate.
