The Class Four child is energetic and eager to learn more about the world. They are ready for new interests and are keen to understand the interconnectedness of systems and our Main Lessons are designed with this in mind.
The Class Four syllabus includes:
- the study of Man and Animals with an overnight camp at Mogo Zoo;
- Marine studies and the History of Whaling at nearby Eden;
- the Study of the Water Cycle;
- local history, both indigenous and settler.
These topics help the children to understand the local area while studies of the History of Number and the History of Writing give them a better understanding of human development.
In Mathematics the children are introduced to fractions. This Main Lesson involves lots of eating and lots of fun.
Stories from Norse mythology with their mood of strength and playfulness enliven the school year and culminate in a class play based on one of the Norse myths. The children provide the music as well as act the parts.
