The second class of the Hermanus Waldorf School is a lively group of children, full of energy. When the children arrive at school in the morning, they start playing circle games and run around. In the morning they do counting and learn tables with beanbags and movement. They love the Fables and Saint stories and relate well to these. They also love the artistic lessons, drawing, painting, music and handwork, it is their breathing out time. When they knit the whole class becomes completely quiet, because they are all concentrating so hard not to drop a stitch! The children start now see how letters are put together to form a word. Maths is one of their favourite subjects. They love counting forwards and backwards, doing bonds, and enjoy doing the four processes. The class went to the petting farm at the end of last year, where the children enjoyed feeding the animals. This year they plan to visit the penguin colony nearby, to see and learn more about penguins. Some children are physically small and some are really tall for their age, but they play well together, sharing and supporting one another.
