In Class Two (age 7/8) the children move on to lower case writing and extend their reading and spelling skills.
Stories are chosen to focus the work in literacy which also nourish the child’s inner life. After the fairy tales of Class One the class now hears selections of animal tales and fables along with legends of the saints. In the former a simple moral sense is kindled and nurtured, while in the latter a sense of reverence is fostered for what is good and true, and for those who strive to serve higher principles. Number work is taken further with more involved written and mental arithmetic, and with the rhythmic learning of the rest of the multiplication tables.
