Debate: Roman Legionary – Would you rather be in or out?

Year Five had a fantastic morning with our English lesson. Both classes have spent all week learning more about the Ancient Romans and their armies. After our visit to York last week, we built on what we already knew about Roman Legionaries (a Roman soldier) and their roles, responsibilities and treatment.

Some of the reasons we found were really positive, others made you wonder why anyone would want to be one! Today, we put all that information together and used it to plan debate points, even thinking about arguments and counter-arguments. With a bit of practice in our groups, we were ready for the real debate. Look below for some of our preparation. The teachers were so proud of what they achieved!
