Many primaries find themselves hard-pressed to reach the expected standards for spoken foreign languages, but the National Curriculum has a completely different focus for ancient languages. Where Latin is taught, the priority is for comprehension of the written word, discussed in English, as well as classical history and cultural capital.
“Modern foreign languages” used to be an optional subject, but in the 2014 curriculum it became statutory with a new name, “foreign languages”, and its expectations were raised considerably. Many schools struggle with the requirements for a range of reasons: teacher expertise; isolation from other learning; even behaviour. There is a different focus for ancient languages, though, and this can drive your children’s confidence in English comprehension and speech.
This short course suggests Latin might be a much-underestimated context for a range of primary school needs.
This course is appropriate for primary schools.
