Welcome back to our little blog! We hope that you'll enjoy this year's journey with the saints and animals. Here's a description of what we will be doing this year from the Curriculum.
This time is used primarily for practising and developing all the new skills from the previous year. Whereas in Class 1 a lot of energy went into forming the class into a socially cohesive group where children are supported by the wholeness that they experience, in Class 2 a mood of contrast or polarisation often surfaces, which can be observed in the way children relate to each other.
To help them go through this stage, they are told stories where contrasting human qualities and characteristics are found portrayed by holy people and saints in legends and by animals in the fables. This class needs strong leadership from the teachers through consistency of approach and through the power of imagination. The children derive direction and form from the images they are given.
