Our Home-schooled children have been getting creative at the Tuition club! Our children, Ages 7- 11 have been taught how to use different mediums to the best effect. Sketching and working with different mediums they have been guided and taught by our wonderful and encouraging tutors.
The session started off with looking at The ColourWheel; Color wheels show us how colors are related. They remind artists how to mix and think about colors. Primary colors cannot be made from other colors, Artists create all the other colors of the rainbow by mixing together the primary colors. Secondary colors are made by mixing two primary colors. Each secondary color is made from the two primary colors closest to it on the color wheel. Children then went on to mix their own colours and recreated a piece of still life art work that inspired them. For those who have some art skills under their belts built on what they already know and are encouraged to move forward to the next steps in their creative journey.
In Science, Our students in year 6 and 7 have now completed their 4-week project learning all about habitats of Polar Bears. They have been learning that homes for polar bears is on the sea ice, where they hunt seals at open leads. The bears are found in five nations across the Arctic in the U.S. The sea ice is vast and ever-changing. Because of this a polar bear’s home range can be enormous—far greater than any other species of bear. The size of a polar bear’s range depends on two main factors: the quality of the sea ice and the availability of their seal prey. Some sea ice lies over productive hunting areas, and some ice regions will melt sooner than others in a warming Arctic. Students have been introduced to the effects of Global Warming .

On Wednesday the children had the opportunity to take part in various activities.
Some included Baking, Cold Cooking, Stem challenges as well as a trip to the local Transport Museum.
The children were extremely excited and through these activities they got to build basic skills, boost confidence, develop spatial perception and planning skills, learn mathematical concepts and much more.
The stem challenges such as the stem jellybean structures allowed the children the opportunity to encourage experimentation, share ideas, encourage teamwork, show creativity as well as develop many other skills.
Last week our home-schooled students enjoyed a week of well-deserved fun activities which were both educational and entertaining.
The week started off with a trip to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.
The children got to explore the different types of objects and world changing ideas.
They visited the world’s oldest surviving passenger railway station and the world’s first railway warehouse, built in 1830.
They enjoyed the live demonstrations of historic working machinery as well as taking part in some of the fun science shows which was an enjoyable experience for all.
Another group visited the Imperial War Museum in Manchester.
Alhamdulillaah yesterday afternoon we came to the end of another term at the Tuition Club and to celebrate the achievements of our home schooled students, we held an end of term ceremony.
