Chariots

In D.T we used many different skills to make a Roman Chariot. We had to measure and saw pieces of wood to make a frame. We used the hot glue gun to stick the frame together. Within art, we researched and then designed a carriage to go on our frame.

Shades of orange

We used water colours to create shades of orange. We used our colour mixing skills to make the colour lighter or darker.

Shields

Within art, we researched and designed our own Roman shields. We looked carefully at the patterns and the colours the Romans used. We then drew our design on cardboard and painted them using poster paints.
