Living Learning: German Language and Culture with Jane

Did you know that English and German are both West Germanic languages? They have a fair share of common words, but beware of false friends! This three week German language and culture series will introduce the common historical roots of German and English. It will teach you how to introduce yourself in German and count high enough to tell people how old you are. You will learn how to describe yourself and others; and sing along to the German alphabet. Knowing the German letter sounds will enable you to read unknown words from a dictionary! We will also cover some Geography and History of Germany; and look at German culture, traditions and customs. Look forward to a fun mix of role plays, games and songs.

Children need to be able to read to benefit from the workshop.

Living Learning: Ancient Japan with Madison Martin

Konnichiwa

My name is Madison Martin and I’m an Art and Japanese teacher and former Homeschooler. Come along with me for a journey into the world of Japanese history where we will learn about Samurai, traditions, customs and what life was like throughout the eras of Japanese history.

This class is for ages seven and up, although to get the most out of this class students should be able to listen and engage with the subject matter and classroom discussions as well as have some basic literacy skills for paper handouts and note taking if they choose to. Classes run for two weeks and are one hour sessions.

I am a nineteen year old artist and tutor, I have been studying Japanese for seven years now and enjoy teaching Homeschooled children both Japanese and Art. I was Homeschooled from Kindergarten to Year 10 so I feel uniquely qualified to both guide and understand the journey of a Homeschooled child.

I am now studying a Bachelor of Fine Art and Visual Culture with Curtin University and am working toward a Master of Secondary Education. My artwork is featured in Gallery ONE88, the Hub and Mountain High Pies and I can be found on Facebook and Instagram @kewpidollart.

I hope to see you at my classes and can’t wait to go on this journey with you.

What to bring: note taking supplies as well as anything your child particularly likes to draw with

Living Learning: Build-a-mind

Build-A-Mind focuses on exposing children (and adults) to new technology, new tools and different methods of construction, alongside familiar toys such as Lego.  Children are gently encouraged to express their creativity and expand their horizons at a pace that suits them individually. Our team of Edutainers facilitate explorative learning and guide the children to find their own conclusions on how to progress with whatever project they may be working on.

Our mantra begins “We are makers, we are creators, we are innovators …..”  and we strive to instill this belief in everyone we work with.
