Takeover Day

  • 17 November 2017

We are planning a Latin Takeover Day with Mandeville Primary School in St Albans. They study the Minimus Latin workbook at KS2 and we are hoping their year 6 students can run activities in the museum for their year 3 students who will have just started to study the language. It may be that they can run events for their families and the public too. Exact plans we want to shape with the students themselves and this will start in earnest September 2017. Teacher planning meeting set for before the end of July 2017.
