About Our Site and Aequora
Our Aequora site is located at Oundle Primary School in Peterborough, UK. It is a school that provides many after-school programs and opportunities to its students, now including Latin.
Aequora is a K-8 program focused on literacy via Latin. We have chosen Aequora because we believe in the benefits of a classical education. Through The Paideia Institute’s Aequora curriculum, our volunteers harness the classical languages’ power to improve literacy, cultural understanding, and equity in education — all while making the ancient Mediterranean world fun and accessible to students of all backgrounds.
Led by independent site coordinators, Aequora envisions Classics as an inclusive, diverse, and socially engaged field. Our textbook, Aequora: Teaching Literacy with Latin, introduces the basics of Latin vocabulary and grammar, Roman culture and mythology, and connections between Latin, English, and Spanish, all through games and activities designed to show students that learning Latin is fun!
How We Teach Aequora
At Oundle Primary School, we currently have two volunteers, who are thoroughly invested in learning about the classics and sharing their love for Latin with younger students. We meet every Wednesday from 3:30 - 4:30 PM at the Oundle Primary School Library.
The Aequora at Oundle Primary School program was founded by Oundle School student William Ma.
