Year 9

Latin in Year 9 is taught as an extra-curricular class. Pupils currently studying Latin in Year 9 started Latin in Year 8 off-timetable. There are approximately 5 lessons for each topic.  The two themes of language and cultural background are taught alongside each other in each term. Pupils use the Cambridge Latin Course, Book 2, for this year. The website www.cambridgescp.com is very useful for revision and for completing tasks set during lesson time.
