Roman London teacher study day

Monday 8 July, 10am-3.30pm | FREE, lunch included

Join us for this free study day held in association with Classics for All and the Society of Antiquaries.

Held in person at the Society of Antiquaries in Piccadilly, London, the day is aimed at KS2 teachers looking to expand their teaching about Roman London. Focusing on both objects and language we hope to inspire you to update your schemes of work to ensure primary evidence is key to your pupils’ learning.

Study day overview

Session led by the Society of Antiquaries

Help us shape our Romans in London session for KS2! We’ve developed a pilot session and now invite teacher feedback on the content. We'll take you on a tour of Ancient Rome within our building, showcase items from our collections, and canvas your thoughts on how we might support your pupils’ learning in 2024-25 and beyond. We’d also love to hear your thoughts on extra-curricular activities. Would your pupils be interested in joining a Young Antiquaries Society?

Session led by Classics for All

Learning about the roots of the English language offers a key to understanding new words and enriching vocabulary. As highlighted in Alex Quigley's influential book 'Closing the Vocabulary Gap' (2018), building knowledge of etymology and morphology in the classroom can help pupils to develop greater 'word consciousness', which in turn enables them to better understand and use language.

In this session we will:

  • explore key Latin and Greek root words that feature frequently in English
  • explore the importance of Tier 2 and Tier 3 words in the English language
  • discuss implicit and explicit strategies for teaching vocabulary in the KS2/3 classroom
  • share resources that can be used to support the teaching of etymology at KS2/3
  • provide information about how to access free advice and funding from Classics for All to support the introduction or development of classical subjects in your school.
Session led by Museum of London

Not only will you get a sneak peek at the new London Museum's Roman gallery and have an opportunity to feed back your thoughts, we’ll bring along some of our objects too. Handle objects from Roman London and be encouraged to include primary sources in your teaching.
