The children have settled back for the new term here at Tuition Club Online and have been super busy getting stuck into many hands-on creative projects.
From time, we like to share the children’s work so that they feel appreciated and experience a sense of achievement for all their hard work and efforts during the term.
During History some of the children were set assignments and projects related to Ancient Rome.
One of the projects included a Roman Food Dish whereby the children were given instructions on how to research ancient Roman food dishes and then were asked to recreate the dish for their Roman banquet. The children then wrote a summary of their chosen food dish and were then asked to create a ‘modernized’ version of the food dish to share with fellow students. The last part of the project involved writing a summary comparing and contrasting the food dish with the ancient Roman dish that they researched. Have a look at the images of their wonderful work that we have presented below.
For Maths homework some of the students created posters on bar charts including information about what needs to be included in a bar chart and some examples. Using the session PowerPoint slides, the children could draw out key information and use as a guideline to complete their posters.
As we are in the month of Ramadhan the children also had fun creating some Arts and crafts. Some students created some paper lanterns and decorated the lanterns at home for the family to all join in and display. Last week the children also took part in a Ramadhan activity focusing on discussing the importance and virtues of Ramadhan which was a nice way to benefit from the remaining days of Ramadhan.
The Tuition Club Online is now closed for the remaining days of Ramadhan & Eid and will resume week commencing Monday 17th May 2021 In shaa Allaah.
We hope you all have a lovely break and benefit from the remaining days of Ramadhan and wish you all a wonderful blessed Eid.
Tuition Club Online
The Tuition Club has now closed for the last 10 days of Ramadhan and Eid.
During this week, Our home-schooled children have been super busy and creative! They have been making paper lanterns in all shapes and colours! Our children ages 5 onwards were also outdoors this week on a scavenger hunt and were ticking off all the things that they could find on their list! We have found that our home schooled children particularly loved this activity; Play is essential to the healthy development of children; it helps them discover and explore, solve problems, test new ideas and experience friendship, cooperation and teamwork. children 11-13 were also keeping busy with learning how to crochet! As well as being a mood lifter, crocheting has proven health benefits as the small repetitive movements involved can keep your hands, arms and fingers supple and your eyes sharp.
We would like to wish everyone the very best for the rest of this blessed month, and we hope that you all benefit from the break!
What an amazing start to the first week of the summer term 3 for our home-schooled children! The Ramadhan time-change has now taken place and has been much appreciated by our children and tutors. Students have really enjoyed activities throughout the week whilst enjoying the sunshine – it gives everyone a lift! The children have enjoyed the freedom to play outdoors and learning activities have started again and students are building on their hard work done so far. We thank you for your ongoing support with all thing’s tuition club related!
We are excited to announce that the Garden Club will re-start onsite on Friday 23rd April 2021 at 11:00am In shaa Allaah.
The weekly club will give children the opportunity to be part of our learning garden by planting and growing a variety of plants, fruits, vegetables, and herbs. This is an excellent opportunity for children to learn about the scientific processes involved in gardening such as facts about plant growth and compost making in a practical and fun environment!
The Garden Club will give children a sense of responsibility and friendship, it will also enhance Fine Motor Development and introduce them to Scientific Concepts.
Please note: The Garden Club is now taking place on a different day to the Girls Club (the Girls Club will now be taking place on Sundays In Shaa Allah)
The club costs £3 per session for ages 6+ and will run from 11:00am to 12:00pm every Friday.

Last Friday was the end of Term 2 at Tuition Club Online and to celebrate the achievements of our online students, we held a ceremony online.
During the online assembly, we shared the wonderful work that our online students had completed with parents and tutors.
We presented and showcased the various work that the children had produced and had a few student speeches.
The students had the opportunity to see the achievements made by different age groups.
We therefore recognise the importance of engaging students and giving them a platform for public speaking.
As a result, we have seen the students build confidence and strengthen oral communication skills which has been a delight to see.
Students were rewarded for their exceptional efforts and were presented with certificates and gifts.
Have a look at their amazing work below!
End of Term 2
Tuition Club has now closed for end of term 2. We hope you are having a lovely break. The Tuition Club will resume back on Monday 19th April 2021.
Please ensure your child/children completes any homework set so they are ready for the new half term.
Any outstanding payments please arrange the amount to be paid before the new term begins.
Ramadhan Break/Timing Change
During the blessed month of Ramadhan, the Tuition Club will delay timings slightly to make it easier to those who are fasting and may find it difficult to arrive earlier. During Ramdhan the Tuition Club will begin at 11:00 am and will finish at 16:00pm.
Timetables will remain the same. The time change will not affect the weekly fees.
Please watch out for regular updates via our Facebook and Twitter accounts (@tuitionclub) or join our telegram channel (telegram.m0e/thetuitionclub).
We would like to thank you for your continued support.
The Tuition Club
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.
Our online computing students have been learning about algorithms and programming using scratch.
The children have been focusing on how to use the program to create, move and size characters and then how to sequence instructions including the use of a repeat command.
Using Scratch, the children are learning to solve problems, design projects, and express themselves creatively using the computer.
The students have also been using Code.org and have been presented with additional home learning resources to develop their computer skills at home.
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.
