Pupils at Key Stage 2 must study a foreign language, but this can include Latin or ancient Greek, not just modern languages. Latin is the root of the Romance languages and provides a great foundation for the later study of French or Spanish.
Latin also supports English literacy across the curriculum by enhancing grammatical understanding and insight into the origins of words, spelling and the meaning of prefixes and suffixes.
Latin dovetails with other areas of the curriculum, such as KS2 History and the study of Roman Britain.
Most importantly Primary Latin is fun and accessible to all.
