Last week our home schooled children had a wonderful trip to the Recycle for Greater Manchester Education Centre, as part of our science programme for this term.
The programme of learning activities began with the children exploring the interactive exhibition area and was then followed by an introduction by the Education Officer, which focused on learning about the various coloured bins and the waste that goes in them. The children then participated in an interactive discussion, showing how the Read more [...]
Some of our home-schooled students have been looking at the topic: The sun, moon, and stars during Science lessons.
The children reviewed what they have learned previously and then focused on the area about phases of the moon.
Students got to learn that the moon doesn’t actually change shape—it just appears to change as it orbits Earth.
The moon takes roughly 28 days to complete one orbit. The moon also takes 28 days to rotate. This means that the same side of the moon always faces Earth. Read more [...]
Last week our home-schooled children focused on Handmade Jewellery making during Arts & Crafts lessons.
The children started with drawing their own creative designs of their own Jewellery and looked for inspiration from other resources.
They looked at a selection of necklaces, brooches and bracelets. They designed their own piece of jewellery and then made a simple bracelet.
Using beads, wire, thread and equipment such the mini Jewellery-making pliers set, the children were able to create Read more [...]
This term the children been exploring visual art looking at different materials such as felt, fabric different types of papers with various textures such as card, cellophane tissue paper and have looked at different shapes to create collages.
Many contemporary artists, such as Fred Tomaselli, continue to work in collage.
The boundaries of this medium are endless, and you will find many artists using some unusual materials.
A curriculum vitae (CV) is a type of résumé that highlights academic achievement.
During Arabic lessons the children have been creating a سيـــــــــرَة ذاتِيَـــــــــــــــــة (CV) advertising their abilities while giving insight into their personalities.
This activity helped the children to think about their skills and experiences using the Arabic language. Using standard headings such as

Some of our home-schooled children have been learning about Volume during their Maths lessons.
Volume is the amount of space in a 3D Shape. It is measured in cubic units.
The children were able to find the volume of the shape by counting how many unit cubes fit inside it.
The students also got to write down the length, width, and depth and then work out the volume and surface area.
Resources such as multi-link cubes aided in making the shapes to work out the volume and surface area.
