Students learn about different types of germs & bacteria!

In Science, our home-schooled children have been learning about different types of germs & bacteria. Germs are tiny organisms. They are so small that they are not visible to the naked eye and can only be seen using a microscope. Many germs are useful and keep our bodies healthy. Some types of germs are even used to make food like bread and cheese, or as medicine like antibiotics. Occasionally, germs can make us feel poorly. Only certain types of germs can have this effect.

Coloured Carnations Science Experiment!

Our home-schooled children have been busy participating in a science experiment which involved making coloured carnations. They made colourful carnations from fresh, white carnations using food colouring and water. The children experimented with red and green food colouring creating different-coloured flowers by using the plant’s ability to absorb water through its stem. Most plants "drink" water from the ground through their roots.  The water travels up the stem of the plant into the Read more [...]

Revisiting Ecology and Plant Nutrition

As we are coming towards the end of term, children have been revisiting topics of Ecology and Plant Nutrition/respiration in plants as well as many other areas. Display posters were created which involved diagrams and pictures showing the part that flowers play in the life cycle of flowering plants. By the end, the children were able to demonstrate understanding of the process of seed dispersal, the processes of pollination, fertilisation and germination as well mention the different stages Read more [...]

Exploring Earthworms- Miniature Ecosystem

Our home-schooled children have been working together to make a mini-ecosystem for earthworms, using a soda bottle and a little creativity. As with all other organisms, earthworms occupy a certain niche: They are both decomposers and consumers, feeding on things like decomposing remains, manure, and other small underground organisms like nematodes, bacteria, fungi, and rotifers. Earthworms breathe by coating themselves with mucus, which allows dissolved oxygen to pass into their bloodstream, Read more [...]

Sheep Heart Dissection in Science!

By studying the anatomy of a sheep’s heart, children learned about how our own heart pumps blood through your body and keeps us alive. The experience of dissecting real animal material adds an extra dimension to understanding the structure of the heart and the relationship of structure to function. The activity allowed the children to investigate and explore the texture and thickness of the vessel and chamber walls, and the movement of the different kind of valves. Using handouts with Read more [...]

Wood Workshop – 08/05/2018

Today our home-schooled students participated and made their own sweet dispensers. Process: Pieces of wood had to be cut down to size and shape, they were then sanded down by the students, who then had to utilise the drill press, slot the parts together and use a glue gun. All safety protocols were explained to the students beforehand, protective eye wear and ear muffs were likewise provided. It is easy to list the benefits from woodworking for children. Here are a few: Emotional/Social: Read more [...]
