Tigris - a tip for Latin teachers

On our return from the rehearsal of the Dream of Gerontius two weeks ago, Charlie and Trevor helped me make this video, as an offering for my teaching colleagues. My idea is that a device as simple as a glove puppet can help a teacher add a little drama into the classroom, and at the same circumvent some of the strictures placed on teachers in today's rather cautious world.

Tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis.


  1. That is a lovely Latin lesson David, children should get into Latin at a VERY young age, and then all their English vocabulary would be easy for them too.

    Well done, I hope this fun idea of yours gets followed up


  2. great first lesson

  3. Thanks Helen. Agree entirely about starting them young.
