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.
