The main lesson
One subject at a time is taught in depth for a period of 3 to 4 weeks in a manner suitable to the child’s stage of development. This system allows for the integration of a variety of activities and intellectual and creative work based on the topic that is being taught at the time.
The Seven Year Cycle – One class teacher throughout Primary School
The class teacher remains with the children from class one to seven. This achieves four valuable educational objectives:
• The teacher’s continuous and deepening knowledge of the children in his/her class.
• An increasing intimate connection between teacher and parents, fostering greater understanding of and security for the pupil.
• The continued development of the teacher.
• An interrelationship between subject matter taught in early and later yeas which further enriches the curriculum and the child’s learning experience.
