Our home-schooled children have been doing a mini dig after discussing and learning all about what History is and the work of Historians.
Archaeologists dig things like dishes and toys out of the ground.
They find out about the past from these things.
The children had fun participating in a simulation of an archaeological dig.
They used material such as small items from household, a plate/shoebox full of sand, small brushes, old tooth brush, tweezers and a small bag to place items in.
Our home-schooled children have had an excellent start to the new academic year.
During Arabic lessons they have been working on letter writing which focused on their summer holidays.
Letter writing is an essential skill which is also taught during Arabic lessons. It is also fun and helps to compose written text and provide handwriting practice.
Children must be aware of different styles of writing, the use of formal and informal letters, and to select style and vocabulary appropriate to the intended reader.
Our home-schooled students have produced some excellent work which can be viewed here
Tuition Club resumes on Monday 2nd September 2019.
We look forward to welcoming back our students and staff InshaAllah.
Alhamdulillaah yesterday afternoon we came to the end of another year at the Tuition Club and to celebrate the achievements of our home-schooled students, we held an end of year ceremony and a parents afternoon.
During the ceremony our students were rewarded for achieving a 100% mark in all subjects on the Tuition Club behaviour and effort charts and were presented with certificates and gifts.
Some of our Arabic students also gave a presentation and this included some lovely speeches from some of our home-schooled children.
After the ceremony we held a parent’s afternoon, which gave parents the opportunity to speak to the tutors regarding their child’s progress.
Our garden club attendees had a wonderful trip to Kenyon Hall Farm on Tuesday.
The children attended an educational farm tour, in which they learnt about the different fruit and vegetables grown on the farm. This gave an in-depth insight into food production, nutrition and healthy eating.
This was then followed by a ‘Pick Your Own Fruit/Vegetable’ activity, which added a hands-on learning experience to the trip. The attendees had a lot of fun picking garden peas and were very excited to take them home to show their parents.
