St Peter's Catholic

Primary School

"Loved by Jesus, we love, we learn, we live and grow together for Him"


Latin Intent

At St Peter’s Catholic Primary School we know that learning a foreign language provides an opening to other cultures and differing ways of life. Therefore, we strive to create a high quality languages education which will foster pupils’ curiosity about the large and rich culture of Latin. 

Latin teaching - from Year 3 through to Year 6 - will enable pupils to express their ideas and thoughts in another language and respond to others, both in speech and in writing. Learning Latin at St Peter’s will provide the foundation for learning further languages, equipping pupils to study and work in other countries – giving children more opportunities and more experiences of the wider world.


National Curriculum Aims:

  • understand and respond to spoken and written language from a variety of authentic sources 
  • speak with increasing confidence, fluency and spontaneity, finding ways of communicating what they want to say, including through discussion and asking questions, and continually improving the accuracy of their pronunciation and intonation                                                                   
  • can write at varying length, for different purposes and audiences, using the variety of grammatical structures that they have learnt                                                                                                   
  • discover and develop an appreciation of a range of writing in the language studied
