Class 5

Around class 5 the ability to form abstract concepts of the world begins to emerge. The class 5 room seeks to reflect a new enquiring outlook into the world. What was a small roof window arising out of the undulating flow of the class 4 roof has become a wide, formalized gable window in class 5, reminiscent of the angles and proportions found in Ancient Greek architecture, Ancient Greece being the cultural theme for class 5.

Overall the room has much less of the organic flow evident in the earlier rooms, in favor of greater formality and weight. The greater degree of formality is connected with the intrinsic nature of conceptual thought, which brings structure, form and understanding in contrast to movement and flow which arise from the heart. In the class 5 child there is still a perfect balance between movement and form, but this balance is about to tilt in the following years.
