Roman Shields – Sapphire Class
In Sapphire class, we have been learning about the Romans. When we learnt about Roman shields we decided to make our own.
We started off by designing our shields on a piece of paper. Then we chose a piece of cardboard and started painting! Most of our shields had wings or arrows on. This is because they represent 2 important gods.
The wings represent a Goddess called Victoria. She was the Goddess of Victory. The lightning bolts represent Jupiter, who was the King of the Gods. Some of them had a wreath on to show honour to the Emperor. The shields were painted red in the background to represent Mars the God of War.
It was really fun and we all enjoyed doing them!!
