Line Graph Challenge!

A line graph is a graph used to show changes over time, for example, changes in temperature through a day.

It is created by plotting points and joining them with straight lines.

As more than one line can be presented on the same graph (double or multiple line graph), line graphs are useful for comparing changes, which occur over the same period of time, for more than one group.

Students were guided through the process of drawing a line graph.

Students have been developing their understanding of using line graphs as a way of presenting data.

Children were asked to label the axes of line graphs and to interpret the data to answer questions.

They then moved on to more challenging activities using fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving questions.

Pin Loom Crafting at the Tuition club!

Our students aged 9-10 have been pin loom crafting this half-term; a loom is a device used to weave cloth and tapestry. The basic purpose of any loom is to hold the warp threads under tension to facilitate the interweaving of the weft threads. Pin weaving offers both versatility and portability for a woven project. The warp threads are held in place with straight pins. Weaving can be done in any direction, using thread, yarn, fabric strips, beads, feathers or other fibres. Crafting helps build self-esteem and gain confidence by:

  • Building new skills
  • Feeling productive
  • Providing a useful way to give to others
  • Creating beauty through self-expression

Visual Art & Crafts- Arabic Vocabulary Activity

Some of our private students have been getting creative while learning Arabic vocabulary in the home.

By presenting and using objects in the home the students have been working on building their Arabic vocabulary and have had fun while doing this.

Tutors have then been able to check understanding using key questions during the online lessons.

Using a word mat with the vocabulary taken out. Can students remember the words?

If you say a word using the Arabic Language, can they draw the correct object?

To reinforce the basics, this cut, stick, and label activity has helped students associate objects and areas of the house as well as the Arabic vocabulary covered in various previous topics

As you can see the students have thoroughly enjoyed the experience!

We have been learning about Cultural Maps

Cultural Heritage is the attributes, customs and traditions which are passed down between generations. It is an expression of self, as well as of community and family.

People of the same culture often have a shared identity, which can give a sense of pride, comfort, and belonging to members of the cultural ethnicity or group.

Our students at the Tuition club have been encouraged to think about the importance of cultural heritage.

We have found that this group activity is an amazing way of creating positive peer relationships and friendships. As each child takes a turn to discuss their cultural heritage, you can encourage to ask respectful questions and expand their understanding of other cultures. Group discussions like these can also be helpful in building confidence and valuable public speaking skills in children.

We have been making our own Anemometer!

Our home schooled children aged 5-6 have been having fun in their scientific craft / experiment -by making their own anemometer (wind gauge) out of paper cups and pencils, and them learning how to measure the wind speed. The hands-on activity has demonstrated to our little learners that you cannot see the wind, but you can see it move things and see if the wind is moving fast, slow, or not at all. By making the wind gauge the children now show a good understanding of how a real anemometer works! Cup anemometers are simple instruments used by meteorologists to measure wind speed.

Computing

Computing

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!

Telling the Time to the Minute and Hour

Our age 6-7 online students have been learning how to tell the time to the nearest minute and hour on an analogue clock.

Knowing how to tell the time accurately is a very important skill.

The children have been using the language including ‘past’ and ‘to’ when telling the time and have been using Roman numerals on clock faces when answering questions which has helped practise fluency, reasoning, and problem-solving questions.

On a standard analogue clock face, there are 12 hourly increments. These are sometimes represented by Roman numerals.

Roman numerals up to VII represent the hours in a day.

Once children have mastered how to tell the time to the nearest minute, they can progress to telling the time past the hour.

Properties of shapes

Our online students have been learning all about the different properties of shapes.

The students got to learn that a corner on a 2D shape is called a ‘vertex’ and the plural is ‘vertices’.

In the first task, they counted the vertices on various familiar 2D shapes.

In the second task, children got to spot the odd one out in groups of shapes by looking at the different numbers of vertices the shapes have.

Questions were given to the students to encourage reasoning and discussion.

These helped strengthen children’s abilities with describing the properties of shapes.

Is the moon a planet?

Our home-schooled students have been exploring what they know about the moon and whether they think the moon is a planet.

A planet is a sphere made of rocky material or gas that orbits the sun.

A moon, on the other hand, is a sphere of rocky material that orbits a planet, just like our moon orbits Earth.

Students took part in a fun creative activity looking at the names of the planets in our solar system.
The oral activity gave the opportunity for students to recall the properties of a planet and list them in their books.

Visuals were included of planets as part of class discussion to connect properties of the planets and then compare them to the moon.

Narrative Nonfiction Writing

Our home-schooled children have been looking at narrative nonfiction texts to help structure a story and look at key features to include.

The students looked at examples of narrative structure which helped to work towards their narrative writing task.

Some of the elements included looking at and discussing the following:

  • Developed characters.
  • Engaging dialogue, written as in a novel, as opposed to direct quotations.
  • A story using scenes that follow a narrative.
  • Use of literacy devices such as imagery, symbolism, and metaphors.

By looking at the above elements the students were able to explore the purpose and importance of structure within narratives.
