Create a non-fiction information text all about Roman Chester.  

You may be able to find out about the Romans in Chester by using the internet, books from the library or exploring Chester itself! Think about how you can present your facts in a clear and organised way. What would a sensible title be for your work?

Create a number line up to 20 or possibly 30. You could challenge yourself to create a hundred square with the Roman numerals from 1-100!
