Modern Foreign Languages – curriculum information

The pupils in KS2 will learn Latin. The study of Latin complements the phonics scheme we follow in EYFS and Key Stage 1 (Sounds – Write). Additionally, studying Latin enables our pupils to understand the origins of the modern English language and other foreign languages – many of which take their roots from Latin.
