Money, money, money. Year 4 used a range of sources to research Roman coins. We discovered that Roman coins reflected famous people, landmarks, and events from across the era. Many wealthy Romans would mint coins so the Roman people knew their face; Emperors weren’t above this. To commemorate famous victories for the Roman Empire and her armies, coins would be shared to the legionaries, often spent and spread quickly. Clay moulding was the method of choice to create Roman coins. Pupils selected tools to carve and mould their designs into clay.
