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.

There are two types of pronouns in Arabic, one is the Attached Pronoun, and the other is Detach Pronoun.

Usually, pronouns take the place of a noun and function as a subject of the sentence.

The students have designed their own posters to help them remember and learn these pronouns.

Understanding Glacial Earthquakes!

Our age 8-9 homeschooled children have been investigating the causes of earthquakes during their recent science sessions.

Some of the most spectacular features on our planet from the Himalaya Mountains to the Pacific and Atlantic oceans have been created in association with earthquakes.

Earthquakes are caused by motions in the Earth’s plates. While earthquakes can be destructive, they are also an expression of the dynamic forces within Earth that shape the planet on which we live.

The children were given a hands-on activity to complete at home.

This involved investigating the effect of glacial movement on landforms.

The children used sandy ice cubes as a model of a glacier which had pieces of rock in its ice.

Once they completed the activity, they recorded the results and gave a description of what they discovered.

Creating Wax Tablets & Roman Standards in History!

In History, the children have been learning all about the Romans.

Roman children learned to write using a wax tablet.

This was a wooden board covered with a thin layer of beeswax.

The letters were scratched onto the wax surface with a sharp stick called a stylus.

The letters were rubbed out by smoothing them over with the round end of the stylus, leaving the tablet fresh and ready to use again and again.

The students have also been learning about Roman Eagle Standards. Standards were tall poles topped with various emblems and symbols which were used in battle.

The students have had a lot of fun creating their own wax tablet to practice writing the Roman alphabet and numerals.
