Class Seven

In Class Seven (age 12-13) the expansion into the wider perspective continues: in geography, cultures of the world are investigated, while history lessons look at the age of the great explorers and the Renaissance.

Physics lessons continue with mechanics, magnetism and electricity, and chemistry is now begun with a study of combustion.  In English the expressive capabilities of language are developed; maths moves on into algebra, and in geometry Pythagoras’ theorem and its applications are examined.  Health, hygiene and nutrition come now, at an age when the children are becoming increasingly aware of their own bodies; in complete contrast to this is the introduction of astronomy, which forms a healthy balance to such preoccupations.
