Stage 3 (Yr 5 & Yr 6) Time 1:30PM – 3:30PM  ($225)

STEM is a curriculum based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and applied approach. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

One of the key aspects of science education is the ability of students to
explore, discover, test and present topics that are of interest to them and
have been developed independently.

In this unit students will be guided through the scientific process in
order to develop a question and design an experiment to test their theories.

At the culmination of the unit students will present their experiments to
the group and discuss their findings.

This unit has been designed around the STEM framework to directly address
outcomes from the NSW Science and Technology curriculum. There are thinking activities to define a question for personal study (tuning in), to be followed by research and investigation (finding out).Students will conduct daily experiments and investigations with all outcomes linked to the Australian Science and Technology Curriculum.

 

  1. Phonics (before 11:00am or after 1:00am) 30mins 1-1 $180 or pairs $135@

Learning phonics will help your children learn to read and spell. Written language can be compared to a code, so knowing the sounds of letters and letter combinations will help your child decode words as he reads. Knowing phonics will also help your child know which letters to use as he writes words.  Learning through an intensive week, it will assist little kids to retain and process smoothly.
