What is the Main Lesson?

The Main Lesson runs from 8.45 – 11.00 every day. The uninterrupted 2-hour lesson at the beginning of each day is the cornerstone of the Steiner curriculum, when one topic is studied in depth for three to four weeks.  The main lesson begins with a routine of poetry, singing and rhythmical exercises to bring about a mood of concentration before pupils settle down to participate in the subject of the Main Lesson.  

After discussing the subject material that has been delivered through the narrative that day, the pupils record the ‘story’ in their hand-written and illustrated main lesson books. These main lesson books are treasured by their young authors and remain a testimony to each pupil’s creative interpretation and ownership of the subject.
