It will consolidate the language points covered in Books I, II and III as well as introducing new grammar points and vocabulary. Study of the Latin language will be undertaken within a broader context of the Roman cultural heritage. Work undertaken will combine language study with discussion of the historical context of some of the stories in the textbook. There will be opportunity too to look at extracts from Latin literature and history. Students will also be encouraged to share their own interests in Latin and in the Roman world and to extend their knowledge using other books and internet resources.
