MINIMUS - THE MOUSE THAT MADE LATIN COOL

http://www.minimus-etc.co.uk/

Minimus: Starting out in Latin is a unique course for 7-10 year olds, providing a lively introduction to the Latin language and the culture of Roman Britain with a highly illustrated mix of comic strips, stories and myths. Minimus Secundus continues the course up to 13. Both books, along with teachers' resource books and audiocassettes, are published by Cambridge University Press.

The course centres on a real family who lived at Vindolanda in 100AD: Flavius, the fort commander, his wife Lepidina, their three children, assorted household slaves, their cat Vibrissa - and Minimus the mouse! It features many of the artefacts and writing tablets from the Vindolanda excavations.

There is full support for the non-specialist teacher in the Teacher's Resource book and via Inset training. Recommended by Rose-Marie Smith, Long Furlong Primary School.

Primary School Teaching Resources

 

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2600 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our fantastic new featured theme for June 2020 is 'Heroes and Villains'!

 

Our Featured Theme for June 2020 is the fascinating topic of ‘Heroes and Villains. We consider what makes a hero and what might make a villain. We look at the lives of many famous people in history – were they heroes, or were they villains? We also explore superheroes, Olympic athletes and other sporting people, real-life and legendary heroes and heroines and much more besides. All in all, we have 78 super themed websites on offer.

All of our featured themes are made up of a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. They comprise of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support our very engaging and wonderful topics.

 

 

 

 

 

The featured theme is normally updated monthly during the academic year.

Watch out for our great 'Recycling' resources coming in July 2020!

In May, we explored the fascinating world of Railways. We have 40 excellent themed websites on offer, covering: the first engine to travel on a track in 1804, railway development and expansion over the years, including the Industrial Revolution, the Victorian era and the glorious age of steam, taking us right up to the high speed trains that currently thunder along our rail tracks.  We also explore how railways have changed the world of travel and transportation.

As with all of our super featured themes, Railways contains a mixture of teaching and investigation resources. The theme comprises of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this engaging topic.

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 school closures, we decided to also keep our ‘Learning and Living at Home’ theme from April on the homepage during the month of May. The popular theme has grown to 62 great resources and we hope that it will continue to prove useful to teachers, parents and children during these challenging times.

The theme contains the following resources:

  • Free Learning Resource Packs
  • PE and Mindfulness Resources
  • Art and Craft Activities
  • Cooking Activities and Recopies
  • Home Learning Advice and Tipsto
  • Free Stories and Applications
  • Non-Curricular Entertainment
  • Free Language Learning Resources
  • And Much More…

We plan to add to these resources during the crisis and if any teachers or parents out there can recommend any quality sites that we can add to the theme and share with others, please let us know at: hub@123ict.co.uk
