19th June - test
26th June - INSET (so no Classics Club)
3rd July - possible trip date
10th July - our very last CC lesson!
I hope this clears up any confusion about dates (especially that INSET!). And just a reminder, the test (WHICH IS NEXT WEEK!!) will take the following format:
Part 1: Pick the correct Latin word to complete the sentence
Part 2: Translate an unseen block of text (including using vocabulary that you won't have seen before, given to you with the text)
Part 3: Classical culture multiple choice
|infans leonem amat|
Next, onwards and upwards with another CLC translation about the arrival of actors in Pompeii. Your speed as a group at tackling chunks of Latin text has improved fantastically. This bodes really well for those of you who are thinking of carrying on your Latin studies in Year 9. Well done.
And in case we hadn't crammed enough into one lesson, we also started to think about The Odyssey, the greatest poem ever written (IMHO, at least). Here's a great synopsis...
