Teaching, Lessons and Festivals

What is the role of the Class teacher?

From age 6 the children remain with the same Class Teacher who will be responsible for the pastoral care of that group of children and the teaching of the Main Lessons until the pupils move into the Upper School at 14.

What subject lessons will my child have?

The school day is structured to include 2 subject lessons after morning break and 2 subject lessons in the afternoon. Subject lessons include regular practice lessons in English and Maths, as well as eurythmy (a form of movement which will be unique to Steiner schools), Spanish and Mandarin, a wide range of arts, music and crafts, outdoor activities including games and land-work.

What is Eurythmy?

This is a form of movement where different movements and gestures correspond to different sounds or notes. The rhythms and exercises develop concentration, physical co-ordination and social and spatial awareness. It can also be used developmentally and therapeutically to help with learning and behaviour problems. Eurythmy lessons are given throughout the school, from kindergarten to upper school

Which festivals does the school celebrate?

Seasonal and local festivals play an important part in the life of the school. These festivals help to awaken the child's natural reverence, their awareness of the cycle of the seasons, recognition of the mode appropriate to such occasions, and respect for the spiritual essence that exists in us all. Festivals also provide an opportunity for participation by the whole school community and for the joy in the preparation and anticipation of the celebration itself. (see calendar more detail)
