Today we will be learning about one of ancient Rome's most famous buildings - the colosseum.  We will learn about the lives of gladiators and find out what happens to gladiators in an amphitheatre. 

You have a choice of two writing tasks can either be a senator and describe the fight you are watching between gladiators and beasts, or you could be a gladiator and write a diary entry about your day.

Whichever one you choose, remember to check you used the correct punctuation marks, adjectives and expanded noun phrases, adverbs, pronouns to avoid repetition and you re-read your sentences to make sure they make sense!

Have fun!
