Year 11 students turned a traditional board game into a classical one, when they hosted an inter-school Latin Scrabble competition at CHS.
Games took place on specially design Latin boards, complete with roman numerals for points on each letter tile, as teams of two took part in a battle of brainpower to rack-up the most points for their school.
Playing against teams from Manchester Grammar, Stockport Grammar and Withington Girls’ School, the CHS teams played well, using their knowledge of different verb endings and stretching their Latin vocabulary to gain a worthy score.
Classics Teacher, Miss Clare Owens said: “Playing the game benefits the students as it allows them to build on the vocabulary they have learnt in class and encourages teamwork skills. This was also a great practice for the Classical Association’s Latin and Greek reading competition which takes place at CHS in March.”
