Our home-schooled children have been constructing sentences in the Arabic Language.
There are two ways to form sentences in Arabic: You can manipulate definite and indefinite nouns and adjectives, or you can pull together nouns, adjectives, and verbs.
The children have also been practising spellings which is important because it aids in reading and increases their vocabulary.
Enrol your child on our brand new private immersive Arabic sessions, taught by a former Al Ibannah Institute teacher‼️
Your child will learn through play and activities, using a range of visual aids. The immersion language club, consists of our tutors only conversing in Arabic within the classroom. Tutoring in this way is highly effective, and is known to be one of the best methods used to learn a foreign language.
Some of our home-schooled children have been conducting science investigations.
Over time, they have been carrying out a collection of investigations around the topic of plants, looking at life cycles, factors affecting growth, parts of a plant as well as composting and plants that we eat.
They have been identifying and describing the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers.
This also included the following:
• exploring the requirements of plants for life and growth (air, light, water, nutrients from soil, and room to grow) and how they vary from plant to plant
• investigating the way in which water is transported within plants
• exploring the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants, including pollination, seed formation and seed dispersal.
The children are looking forward to many more exciting activities that are yet to come!
Our home-schooled students have been expressing themselves and have created some vibrant abstract artwork.
They demonstrated mixing shades and creating some Drip Painting.
This involved model mixing a range of shades with each colour of paint which demonstrated using a range of tools to drip and spatter the paint onto the paper.
They have also been introduced to the work of artist Jackson Pollock.
This activity has helped develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space in the context of making a painting from shades.
In History our home-schooled students have been looking at the River Nile and why it was essential for survival to ancient Egyptians.
The children have learnt that in ancient times the people of ancient Egypt depended on the Nile to survive.
The River Nile runs through Egypt and most people live along and around it today.
This was also the case in ancient times as this is because the land near the Nile is a place where crops can be grown, and the rest of Egypt is desert.
To aid the children in understanding the above they helped create a model of the River Nile.
