Parents’ Latin Lesson


The Classics department welcomed Lower III and Upper III parents to a beginner’s Latin lesson to experience the joy of learning Latin at The Abbey School.

We delved into Latin sentence structure, nominatives and accusatives, derivations in English from Latin words and even managed to translate the story of Vulcan tricking Mars and Venus. To finish the lesson we considered the values, attitudes and actions of Venus, Mars and Vulcan in the story we had just read.

We concluded with deciding which one we might have worshipped and why, if we had lived in Roman times. Our parent students were excellent and showed a lot of promise!
