Year 8

Latin in Year 8 is taught as an extra-curricular class. There are approximately 2 lessons for each topic. In 2013-14, students will have studied Latin for the first time in Year 7.

Pupils will use the Cambridge Latin Course, Book 1 and 2 and 3. The website is very useful for supporting revision and the completion of tasks set in class.
