At Forest Fields Primary School we have a very active Latin Club which runs every Wednesday at lunch time. The club is open for Year 5 and 6 children. During the club we learn about Roman history and culture and Latin language. We use Minimus books and several other Latin resources available to us. This year we have already practised writing with Roman cursive script on wax tablets and made our own authentic Roman board games. In February we were invited to visit the Latin Hub in East Midlands which is based at Leicester University. We spent the whole day there with the children from the Club taking part in different workshops like recreating Roman mosaics and learning about jobs in Roman Army. See below some pictures from the event!
