This elementary Latin course for 7-10 year olds combines a basic introduction to the Latin language with material on the history and culture of Roman Britain. The Teacher's Resource Book provides support, particularly for non-Classicists. The material on the community at Vindolanda may possibly possibly be employed to supplement studies from the Romans at KS2. It includes teaching guidelines, English translations from the Latin passages, and additional background information, plus photocopiable worksheets. As nicely as providing a lively introduction to Latin and classical studies, Minimus also has cross-curricular relevance. Pupils are drawn into the material as they read regarding the lives of a household living inside a community at Vindolanda; the adventures of the children and the family cat and mouse provide interest throughout. The grammatical content helps to create language awareness, and gives a solid foundation from which learners can progress to additional English or foreign language research. Highly illustrated, the book consists of a mixture of stories and myths, grammar explanations and exercises, and background cultural data.
