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.
Some of our home-schooled children have been learning about Volume during their Maths lessons.
Volume is the amount of space in a 3D Shape. It is measured in cubic units.
The children were able to find the volume of the shape by counting how many unit cubes fit inside it.
The students also got to write down the length, width, and depth and then work out the volume and surface area.
Resources such as multi-link cubes aided in making the shapes to work out the volume and surface area.
Amazing Bake-Off Entries by Our Home-Schooled Students and Tutors!
Alhamdulillaah last Thursday was the end of another half term at the Tuition Club, and it ended in a joyful afternoon with the return of the Bake Off!
We were extremely impressed by all the entries this year as the tables were heaving with delicious savoury and sweet treats related to a subject studied at the Tuition Club.
The outcome showed remarkable creativity by both our home-schooled students and tutors.
One of our home-schooled children has been busy working on a Science project all about Hurricanes.
- A hurricane is a huge, rapidly rotating storm.
- When winds reach 74 miles per hour, a hurricane starts off.
- Hurricanes can be up to 600 miles across and have strong winds of up to 200 mph.
- Hurricanes occur with extreme weather conditions.
The project focused on what Hurricanes are and how to react if one approaches..
