Tuition Club Online Closed for end of Ramadhan and Eid!

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.

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.

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.

Computing – Programming with Scratch

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.

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.

Arabic Pronoun Tree Poster

Recently our Arabic Language students have been learning about pronouns during their Arabic sessions.

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.

How to Make a Volcano Experiment!

Volcanic eruptions are one of the most powerful natural forces on our planet.

In Geography the children were set a project to make their own miniature erupting volcano to help start learning about these incredible geological features.

Using everyday kitchen items, the students were able to use paper-mâché and cardboard to create the model volcano.

A chemical reaction between vinegar and baking soda creates a gas called carbon dioxide.

Carbon dioxide is the same type of gas used to make the carbonation in sodas.

If you shake up a soda the gas gets very excited and tries to spread out.

There is not enough room in the bottle for the gas to spread out, so it leaves through the opening very quickly, causing an eruption!

A full explanation was provided to the students and they were able to perform this volcano experiment and enjoyed the learning experience with family at home.
