Dear Parents

As some of you will already be aware, I run a Latin club after school. It is aimed at pupils in years 4 and 5 and follows the “Minimus” course with the idea of introducing the basics of Latin, in a fun way, to young pupils.

The club will run from 4.15 till 5.00pm each Wednesday, beginning 14th September. At the end of their second year of doing the course pupils can, if they wish, be entered for the OCR certificate “Entry Level Latin” exam. Last year’s group all achieved a Level 2 (60%+) with one pupil achieving a Level 3 (80%+)! To consolidate the lessons and help with the OCR tests, I also organised a trip to the Vindolanda Trust at the end of the summer term.

As part of the course, Minimus organise an annual mythology competition for pupils. It is open to a range of creative and written entries and over the years we have received several Special Prize awards, a Runner Up Prize and two Individual Prize awards.

If your child is interested in joining this club please return the slip below no later than Monday 12th September. Places will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis as the club will be limited to 12 pupils.

Please also include an email address so that I can keep you informed of anything related to the club.

Yours faithfully

Mrs R Jones
