Some of our home-schooled students have been looking at the topic: The sun, moon, and stars during Science lessons.
The children reviewed what they have learned previously and then focused on the area about phases of the moon.
Students got to learn that the moon doesn’t actually change shape—it just appears to change as it orbits Earth.
Last week our home-schooled children focused on Handmade Jewellery making during Arts & Crafts lessons.
The children started with drawing their own creative designs of their own Jewellery and looked for inspiration from other resources.
They looked at a selection of necklaces, brooches and bracelets. They designed their own piece of jewellery and then made a simple bracelet.
This term the children been exploring visual art looking at different materials such as felt, fabric different types of papers with various textures such as card, cellophane tissue paper and have looked at different shapes to create collages.
Many contemporary artists, such as Fred Tomaselli, continue to work in collage.
The boundaries of this medium are endless, and you will find many artists using some unusual materials.
A curriculum vitae (CV) is a type of résumé that highlights academic achievement.
During Arabic lessons the children have been creating a سيـــــــــرَة ذاتِيَـــــــــــــــــة (CV) advertising their abilities while giving insight into their personalities.
This activity helped the children to think about their skills and experiences using the Arabic language. Using standard headings such as
المعلومــــــــات الشَّخصيــــــــــــة (Personal information) the children presented a set of information displayed on their CV.
