The Iris Project has been bringing Latin to our Primary schools by means of its “Literacy through Latin ” programme since 2007 and has now received European recognition. My thanks to Shona Harrison for bringing this report from the Oxford Mail to our attention.
Of the award, the Project Director, Lorna Robinson said
“We’re really excited at the news that the Literacy through Latin project has won this prestigious award.
The judge who visited our lessons was delighted at the pupils’ enjoyment of Latin and their engagement with our method of using storytelling to deliver Latin as part of literacy.
It shows that the project works and that it’s useful and interesting for pupils. We hope the award will help us secure funding for this long-running project to expand and develop.”
