At Argyle we have decided to adopt Latin as our Modern Foreign Language. This decision came about after taking part in the Latin Programme, initially for Years 5 and 6, and seeing the impact it had on their learning of English Grammar. Latin is the root of English and many other languages. It is a valuable key to understanding and learning these, and is a fun and fascinating subject for all children and so we now teach it to all children in Key Stage 2.

 Storytelling, games and activities are used to introduce Latin grammar and to demonstrate the links between Latin and English. In this way we hope to unlock the complexities of English and instil a fascination for learning new languages.

The Latin Programme gives Year 6 pupils the opportunity to visit Cambridge University to further their studies and give them experience of life at a university.
