The Tuition Club is now closed for the half term break.
We hope everyone has a lovely Eid and we will resume back on Monday 10th June 2019 in shaa Allaah
The aim of the experiment was to determine what are the factors that contribute to rusting in metals or leading them to corrode.
Rust is the crumbly, brown material which is caused by the chemical reaction or rather an oxidation process of iron and steel. Iron and steel rust in the presence of oxygen and water.
When a metal object such as nail, rusts the molecules of iron on the surface of the nail exchange atoms with the oxygen in the air and produce a new substance, the reddish-brown ferrous oxide (rust)
A simple science experiment tests the effects of different liquids on the rusting process, such as water, saline, oil, vinegar as well as others.
Garden Club attendees had a great time on Tuesday planting onion and potato seeds and cucumber seedlings in our learning garden. The children were very excited to see the development of the seedlings from the seeds that they planted the previous week. All attendees had a great time gardening and are looking forward to attending the next session after the Ramadhaan break.
Tomorrow our attending home-schooled children will plant the remaining seeds outdoors and will also check the progress of their seed trays from last week! Don’t miss out – register at tuitionclub.org/gardenclub or register on the day.
Children have been developing observational skills by creating tonal grid drawing during Art lessons.
The grid method involves drawing a grid over your reference picture/photo, and then drawing a grid of equal ratio on your work surface/paper.
Drawing complex objects purely by eye, without any visual aid like construction lines, or a physical aid like a proportional divider can be difficult.
However, using the grid method can help with drawing objects or pictures which require accuracy.
