「華德福學校的力量與每個人的普遍的共性有聯繫,又深深扎根於每個地方的文化。」華德福是起源於西方文化背景的教育體系,但在香港必須結合本土文化來實施。

華德福教育大綱提到,9歲的孩子正經歷自己與周圍世界的分離。他們想瞭解一切是從何而來的。因此,創世故事特別適合三年級。主課老師會講希伯來神話,即聖經創世故事。在中文版塊我們則帶入中國創世神話,讓孩子感受中國人的起源和遠古人類的生活。

故事分別有:混沌時期的玄黃老祖,盤古開天,女媧時期到五帝時期各神的故事。孩子們沈浸在故事情節中,如同身臨其境,經歷著自己的蛻變。故事中的奇妙與變化深深吸引著他們。我們把故事編成了韻律文本,讓孩子通篇朗誦。



Chinese Main Lesson in Grade 3: Creation Myths

By Miss Gwen Guo, Mandarin Teacher

“The strength of Waldorf Schools is linked to the universal commonality of all people, and is deeply rooted in the culture of each place." Waldorf is an educational system that originated from a Western cultural background, but to implement Waldorf education in Hong Kong, it is woven together with local culture.

The Waldorf Education Outline states that a 9-year-old child experiences separation from the world around them, and they want to know where everything comes from. Therefore, creation stories are especially suitable for class 3 children. The main class teacher will talk about the Hebrew creation myth and the biblical creation story. In the Chinese section, we bring in the Chinese creation myth and let the children feel and understand the origin of the Chinese people and the life of ancient peoples.

The stories are: The First God of the Primordial Chaos Ancestor Xuan Huang, Pan Gu Kai Tian, and stories of the gods from the Nuwa Period to the Five Emperors. The children are immersed in the storyline, as if they were there, and they were experiencing their own transformation. The wonders and changes in the story are deeply appealing to them. We compiled the story into a rhythmic verse and let the children read it out loud.
