# Year 3 Homework Week 2

To be in by Wednesday.

Maths – look again at the challenges from today’s maths lesson.

English:

Roman Army

Only men could be in the Roman Army. No women. Every Roman soldier was a Roman

citizen. He had to be at least 20 years old. He was not supposed to get married while he was a soldier. Most soldiers in the Roman Empire came from countries outside Italy. There were Roman soldiers from Africa, Gaul, Germany, the Balkans, Spain and the Middle East.

Soldiers had to stay in the army for at least 25 years. Then they could retire, with a pension or a gift of land to farm. This was very clever because it meant that Rome had loyal ex-soldiers all over the provinces who could be called on to defend their homes. Old

soldiers often settled down to old age together, in a military town or colonia.

There were about 30 legions in the Roman Army. Each legion had between 4000 and 6000 soldiers, called legionaries. Each legion had ten cohorts. Each cohort was made up of six troops of about 80 legionaries, called centuries. Each century was led by a centurion. A centurion carried a stick, to show his importance. He could also use his stick to beat any soldier who  disobeyed an order. The officer commanding the whole legion was called a

legate.

Legionaries were the best Roman soldiers, and the best paid. There were other

soldiers though. An auxiliary was a soldier who was not a Roman citizen. He was paid a third as much as a legionary. Auxiliaries guarded forts and frontiers, but also fought in battles, often in the front lines (most dangerous).

Usually, Romans liked to fight on foot. They used cavalry, soldiers on horses, to chase a fleeing enemy. In a battle, the cavalry often lined up either side of the foot-soldiers, or infantry.

It was hard I keep on going to read again to find answers

3: Legionaries were paid most
4:Between 4000 to 6000 thousands
5: The league

8:Auxiliary soldiers were paid 3 time less then visionaries
9:10 cohorts
10:30 legions

9. Vaneza S.

I do not understand this pv so I used timetables to solve this
63 ÷3 counting 3 time table answer is 21 because 3×2=6
3×1= 3
Same way 44÷4=11 because 4 timetables 11 times is 44

10. Aaron G.

Maths
Mrs khaliq is incorrect because
6 shared by 3 = 2
3 shared by 3 = 1
Wow
I made my roman fort at home

• Mrs Khaliq

A good start Aaron. Can you complete the second maths question to? Use your reasoning skills like you would in school please. Mrs Frankish is correct/incorrect. I know this because…

11. Rustam M.

Mrs Frankish is incorrect. I know because 44-4=and got 11
4-4=

12. Rustam M.

No the asrer is wrong Because 12 time 3= 36 not 12time 3=36

Maths Mrs Khaliq is incorrect because she put the tens in the ones column and the answer is 21 not 12.
Mrs Frankish is incorrect if she added 2 more columns she would get the answer and the answer is 11 not 22.

14. Lawan R.

NoShe is not correct because she put the times in the ones and forgot to put the other tense she did not count us in.
Miss Frankish is wrong because she did not put four groups That’s how you know she’s wrong.

15. Joshua C.

GD
Wrong because if you put 3 tens in the ones column it will count is a ten because it says 10 on it.
Gold
Wrong because the big number 44 is a part of the 4 times tables so you need to count all the way to 44 by 4.
