The second year of primary school at The Waldorf School can be described as the year of ‘duality’. This is the year where the child will retain that child–like angelic quality that requires a strong role model and at the same time their natural abilities will grow and become noticeable, encouraging them to explore their hidden talents.
These opposites are first met through the two types of stories told in the year. The first kind are fables where animals personify a human quality: either virtue or vice. While the other stories are those of the saints and legends where the child is exposed to great men and women who epitomise the highest and most noble of all human traits: love, wisdom and courage.

Class Two sees the child becoming more grounded in their development and more focused on their learning. They enter each day full of wonderful enthusiasm and delight in discovering all the new skills they can achieve.
