Latin

Latin at Moreton Hall combines the most traditional of Prep School subjects with innovative use of technology. The intention is to instill an appreciation of the classical world, an authoritative grasp of the grammar and lexicon of Latin and to support language learning in general.

Latin is introduced in Year 5 with the Minimus course – taught by the illustrator herself, Dr Forte. In Year 6, the focus adjusts to the requirements of Common Entrance or Scholarship. Greek and Roman civilisation topics are taught throughout the four year period. An extension class exists in Years 7 and 8 to split the class into smaller sets and achieve maximum progress.

Form V staged a reconstruction of Pius saves the camp, which we turned into a comic.  Download a copy to see more!   Form V have made an animation to help them remember their numbers in Latin. Click here to watch!
