Roman formations

Last week, in History, we learnt about the successful Roman army. The Roman army was the largest and meanest fighting force in the ancient world. The soldiers were the best trained, they had the best weapons and the best armour. We all became Roman soldiers today and learnt their formations.

The testudo: This formation was used to defend.
The orb: This formation was used to defend.
The wedge: This formation was used to attack.

















































Ash class quiz:

What shape is created in the wedge formation?
What does testudo mean? 
Who would be protected in an ‘orb’ formation? Why?
