Latin

Our KS2 pupils take part in a weekly Latin lesson following the 'Maximum Classics' scheme of work. Through these lessons, our pupils:

  • write Latin words, phrases and sentences to communicate meaning 
  • develop an appreciation of the Latin language and culture
  • develop an understanding of etymology and the relevance of this and the words we use in modern English
  • increase their knowledge and understanding of English grammar and spelling

Latin lessons are divided into two distinct sessions. The first being language instruction; repetition of previous learning, deliberate practise and an introduction to new learning. The second session is based on a cultural element usually consisting of fact learning and an experience such as cooking a Roman menu or designing and making Roman mosaics.
