We have been learning the story of Queen Boudicca who lived in Britain two thousand years ago. When her husband king Prasutagus died, she took over as ruler of the Iceni tribe. The Romans, recently arrived from Italy, were hungry for more land where Boudicca lived. Boudicca decided to fight back.
We have written speeches from Boudicca’s point of view, to persuade the Iceni tribe to follow us into battle. When we had finished we worked with a partner to edit our work and make corrections.
