Actors bring ‘dead’ language to life

A 'dead' language brought classrooms to life at an Oxford school.

Younger pupils at Cheney School, which already offers Latin and Ancient Greek 
among its language courses, were introduced to Latin as part of the Iris

state school pupils.

The Living Classics workshops are taking place across the country and are run 
by Oxford University graduate Dr Lorna Robinson.
