Resources to support teachers and pupils
English, History, Romans, Storytelling

If your pupils are studying the Roman Empire and its impact on Britain and/or local history, our Roman Britain resources are the perfect support to your lesson planning.

Our resources are designed to help your pupils learn, whether they are in the classroom or at home.

Some resources were created during lockdown and are specifically designed for those pupils learning at home. They will also support and complement a visit. Click here to see our Roman Rule: Boudicca’s Revolt workshop page if you would like a trip to the Royal Armouries, Leeds. Click here to see our The Romans are coming! workshop page if you would like a trip to Fort Nelson, Portsmouth.
