The intent for Latin at Holy Family Catholic Primary School is to give an understanding of the importance of Latin in everyday language we use in this society. It will open up new ways of thinking and understanding of many languages including German, Spanish, French and Italian.

The children will be able to use their knowledge to support their learning of other subjects including Mathematics, English, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Design Technology, Music and others. The children will gain confidence of the World around them. They will understand more complex vocabulary in their everyday lives, giving them more opportunities for self fulfilment.
