Latin

Year 10 Latin

The study of Latin helps to develop an understanding of the vocabulary, morphology and syntax of the language in order to read, understand and interpret Latin passages. Pupils develop their knowledge and understanding of ancient literature, values and society through the study of original texts. They become proficient in selecting, analysing and evaluating evidence to draw informed conclusions from literature studied.
