Task 1 - Use a piece of paper like I have done to locate right angles in your house.

What did you find that had a right angle?

What did you notice?

Why do you think many things are made using right anglers?

History –


LO: To know when and where the Roman Empire began.


SC1) I can state where the Roman Empire originated.

SC2) I can state when the Roman Empire originated.

SC3)I can recall the story of the founding of Rome.


Activity 1:

If you have access to the internet, please use google maps to research the location of city of Rome, or look at pictures on google images of Rome. If you have an atlas, you could use this.


This is where the Roman Empire started.  Historians believe that Rome was founded in 753BC. BC means before Christ (before the Christian era).

Activity 2:

Read the story attached of Romulus and Remus as to how the founding of Rome happened and how the Roman Empire started.





Activity 3:

Can you write a summary of the Legend of Romulus and Remus from the video that you have just watched?

You can either write this summary as:

- Bullet points

-A paragraph


Remember, a summary is a shortened version of the story, in your own words. 

I look forward to reading these!
