Class Five

In Class Five (age 10-11) we see the introduction of history proper: after the experiencing of the development of human consciousness through the progression of Indian, Persian and Egyptian mythologies the children arrive at the ‘cradle of Europe’ in a study of early Greece.  Geography now expands to cover the British Isles, and in mathematics we move on to decimals and first geometry principles.

The children are still very much approached through the imagination, rather than from an intellectual approach.  Also in this year are main lessons which explore the world of plants, following on from the animal study of the previous class.
