Our Young learners have been learning all about the Nomads during History.
Nomads moved around a lot. They lived in tents.
They gathered grasses and berries and hunted animals for food.
Some people who lived during this time period slept outside.
This term our young learners have been learning about living things that have basic needs that help them stay alive.
They took part in a hands-on activity yesterday to see how a plant drinks water.
This experiment involved placing celery in a glass of coloured water to see how the plant drinks the water.
The children were able to record the results once they saw what had happened.
During Arabic this week some of the students have been learning about the Sun and Moon Letters.
The consonants are divided into two groups, called the sun letters or solar letters (Arabic: حروف شمسية ḥurūf shamsiyyah) and moon letters or lunar letters (حروف قمرية ḥurūf qamariyyah), based on whether they assimilate the letter lām (ﻝ l) of a preceding Arabic definite article al- (الـ), which is an important general rule used in Arabic grammar.
The 14 Sun-letters are: (ﻥ ,ﻝ ,ﻅ ,ﻁ ,ﺽ ,ﺹ ,ﺵ ,ﺱ ,ﺯ ,ﺭ ,ﺫ ,ﺩ ,ﺙ ,ﺕ)
The 14 Moon-letters are: ( ه ,ﻱ ,ﻭ ,ﻡ ,ﻙ ,ﻕ ,ﻑ ,ﻍ ,ﻉ ,ﺥ ,ﺡ ,ﺝ ,ﺏ ,أ).
The children got to memorize a rhyme to help learn the letters.
In September we introduced our brand new online classes, following on from the success of our onsite Tuition Club in Manchester. Alhamdulilah we have now expanded our service to cater for home-schooled children from around the World. We are dedicated to supporting home-schooling parents and hope that we can now fulfil our ethos with parents in other cities and countries. The subjects that we provide support in are English, Maths, Arabic, Science, Islamic Studies, History and Geography.
Since commencing, our online home schooled children have been making fantastic progress. They have been learning about Ancient Egypt in History, the process of heredity in Science, importance of the masjid in Islam and much more. Alhamdulilah it has been a great start to the new online academic year, with children from different cities/countries learning and progressing together.
Our aged 6-7 home-schooled children have been learning about Greece and its History.
Through discussion they have learnt about what happened to the barbarians who lived in Greece, how they became civilized, built houses, learned how to read, etc.
To understand the culture the children took part in a cooking activity to show the types of food that were available within Greece at that time period.
