History – key stage 2

Here is some information about a Roman Legionary.

A Roman legionary was expected to march twenty miles a day with full equipment. He carried 2 wooden stakes and a spade to help protect himself by building a stockade. He carried his ration of corn and dried beans. As well as his sword and shield, he also carried two spears. They were designed to bend on impact so that they could not be thrown back by the enemy.

Use this information and some extra research to draw a detailed picture of a Roman Legionary. (Or you could make yourself a costume and props.)
