Our Online History students have been looking at historical recipes to learn about food from the past.
The focus has been learning about Roman recipes.
The Romans brought a lot of food to Britain therefore it was interesting for the children to learn about this.
They brought turnips, apples, pears, celery, carrots, asparagus, and grapes to Britain which you could be incorporated in a banquet.
Children are much more likely to remember the recipes if they have been able to make them themselves and eat them too. The most exciting way to teach children about the foods from the Roman period is to get as creative as possible therefore the children have been encouraged to create a recipe book and try out the recipes at home.
Our Arabic young learners have been working extremely well in conducting sentences and developing their writing skills online. They also enjoyed matching the words to the correct pictures which is a way great for consolidating visual recognition skills. Using different key images, the students worked on developing basic vocab recognition for sentence writing.
Our KS3 Chemistry students have been taking a closer look at Acids and Alkalis by investigating and exploring the pH scale using red cabbage indicator.
Using the home learning pack, the students were able to use a red cabbage indicator strip to test the pH values of various substances, such as lemonade, bleach, washing powder, and others.
The children explored neutralisation reactions by using red cabbage indicator to test the pH of vinegar and bicarbonate of soda before and after they react.
The indicators helped tell whether the substance was acid, alkaline, or neutral. Students got to see the indicators turn a range of colours, depending on the pH of the substance then discussed the results.
Ages 12-14 home-schooled students have been learning about linking verbs during English.
A linking verb connects the subject of a sentence to a noun or an adjective that names or describes the subject. They do not show any action; they simply link the subject with the rest of the sentence. Learners came up with their new snacks and wrote sentences and phrases containing linking verbs. Have a look at the creative designs that the students have prepared.
Class 9-10 have been on a digestion journey this week during their science lesson! Over the past several weeks, the students have learned about the human digestion process from saliva breaking down your food to it passing through the stomach to the small and large intestines. For this weeks science experiment, the children were able to see the process of what stomach acid does to food. During digestion, food passes through the stomach, where it mixes digestive juices and is churned by muscles forming the stomach wall. The students provided the muscles and the soft drink for the stomach acid. The children placed a soft drink, bread and chewed gum in a food storage bag. They squeezed the bag with their hands for about a minute. The children were able to record thier observations and wrote down what they discovered. What happened to the bread? what happened to the gum? By the end of the session, the children were able to write up and explain why the gum and bread reacted in the way that it did using the correct scientific vocabulary in their workbooks!
Class 8-9 have been learning all about different types of seeds and seed dispersal, Our students have discovered different types of seeds found in all types fruit. They were able to identify the different shapes, sizes and colours of seeds from different fruits. Some plants make tasty fruits. This is to encourage animals (and people!) to eat the fruits. The seeds then pass through the animal unharmed and out the other end with a ready supply of fertiliser (not tasty in the slightest…quite the opposite!). This method ensures the seed is given nutrients to help it grow.
- Plant seeds can be dispersed in a number of different ways. Some seeds are transported by wind, and have seeds designed to float, glide or spin through the air
- Many plants also use animals to carry seeds around. These seeds may have handy hooks which attach to an animal’s fur.
Our private students have been working through some mathematical challenge questions.
Using the online tools, they have worked through some math problems, questions, and individual assignments on various topics.
Students have been working on Ratio, Proportion, and 3D Shapes.
For each topic, a target was set which was then graded. The students completed exercises on simplifying ratios and worked on solving more complex proportion problems.
Students have been making posters to showcase Punctuation that they have been using within their writing during English lessons.
They have been focusing on features such as key vocabulary for grammar, punctuation, and spelling.
Writing formally in English is more than just choosing the right words in the right order.
Using punctuation in your writing helps the reader to clearly understand the message that is being conveyed.
This resource can be used as a prompt and spelling reference during independent writing tasks and other activities.
Our students aged 9-10 have being using their skills in Arabic to write about their day! The children have been pracising their vocabulary and have been speaking and listening over the past few weeks. This week the children have been able to write up about their day and use their skills accordingly! Like anything you teach your children, the earlier you expose them to the Arabic language, the easier it will be for them to learn and retain it. Children’s brains develop the quickest during their first five years of life. Childhood is a particularly important time for learning and there are many benefits to teaching your child another language. We at the tuition club believe that children who are bilingual become creative, flexible, more engaged in problem solving! The benefits of an additional language are endless!
Here at the Tuition Club we teach our students more than just the basics of biology, physics and chemistry! We teach them skills that are important in every aspect of our lives, whether it is how to make observations, collecting information or using logical thinking to draw conclusions. Students are able to work in teams and participate in fun experiments and activities, such as baking cakes in order to understand the concept of irreversible reactions.
Maths is one of the most important subjects in a child’s development. Basic mathematics skills are needed in everyday life, and here at the Tuition Club we make sure that our students succeed in gaining those vital skills. We not only cover the National Curriculum, but we also integrate problem solving and mental maths activities into our lessons; enabling students to develop their skills whilst also having fun. Excellent knowledge of maths will open many avenues for children, so come and find out how we can support your child in this important subject!
Here at the Tuition Club our students will explore the past history of Britain, as well as the past history of the wider world. From learning about significant events such as the Great Fire of London, to learning about the Roman Empire, early Islamic civilization and much more; we want to inspire children to want to learn more about the past. Our aim is for students to develop their understanding of the world around them, as well as learn important historical concepts, abstract terms and gain an understanding of historical enquiry methods.
During our geography lessons, we aim to inspire within our students a fascination and interest in the world and its people. Students will develop an understanding of key human and physical processes, as their knowledge of the world grows throughout their studies. Not only will our students be taught in a classroom, but they will also have the opportunity to participate in some exciting fieldwork!
Here at the Tuition Club we understand the importance the subject of English has, in enabling children to communicate effectively through speaking and writing fluently. By covering the national curriculum our teachers aim to support our students in developing their language skills through creative writing, reading and speaking. The lessons are interactive, and many exciting activities are in the process of being planned such as a trip to the local library.
What is computing? Is it knowing just how to switch a computer on? Send an Email and browse the web? We believe computing can be that much more for our kids. Computing can be creative and fun! Imagine if they were able to actually build that computer that they switch on? Or perhaps program it, and install software properly. Instead of just surfing the web, how about design the actual webpages themselves. Our computing tuition is designed to instil that creative and exploratory mindset, to help our students turn it from a dull subject in to a fun and rewarding past time and more!
Arabic is a wonderful language, spoken by millions of people around the world.
Our comprehensive program is designed to tutor the children and help them learn the language more fluently. We also aimt o take them up to GCSE level and beyond, so they can read, speak and write this beautiful and poetic language.
Nurture your child’s creative side by enrolling them for an art lesson at the Tuition Club. Let them explore ways to draw, paint and build the things around them. We currently can offer them painting, drawing, skill co-ordination and creative thinking. Soon we will offer pottery and 3D art… all whilst letting them enjoy themselves and have fun!
At The Tuition Club we provide our students with the opportunity to participate in Physical Education and we believe it to be essential to help with the development of motor skills and the enhancement of reflexes.
The lessons will not only get the students fit and healthy but will be full of fun activities for them all to enjoy. We often take students to the British Wrestling Academy to make use of the space and equipment.
Our mini scientists ages 9-10, have been finding out what really happens when you swallow gum?. During their science investigation, children have been learning about the human digestive system. They can confidently label parts of the digestive system using vocabulary such as; Stomach, esophagus, large intestine, salivary glands and small intestine. Children shouldn’t chew gum until they fully understand the importance of not swallowing it. By age 5, most children will understand that gum is different than sweets and is not to be swallowed. Chewing gum is made of either natural or synthetic materials (gum resin), preservatives, flavorings, and sweeteners. The body can absorb sweeteners, such as sugar But the human digestive tract can’t digest the gum resin. It’s moved through the digestive tract by the normal pushing (peristaltic) actions of the gut. The gum’s journey ends during a trip to the bathroom!
