Starting w/c 12th September, Pear Tree Education is offering the following after-school enrichment programs.
Enrichment courses for Sept - Dec 2022!
Ages 5-10: Lego Club
Let your imaginations and creative skills run wild! Each Lego Club class will have a different building challenge for students to work through, with some challenges to be done in partners to work on collaboration skills, and some challenges to be done individually to work on independence. Some of the fun and creative tasks students will participate in include making Lego ziplines, building a structure with moving parts, or creating a catapult. This program will keep your child engaged and thinking critically!
Ages 5-10: Kids Can Cook
This is our most popular after school program! Students will work individually and in small groups to develop their repertoire of culinary skills. They will learn to handle knives and hot plates properly under teacher supervision, as well as basic food safety. The course includes hot and cold items, as well as a variety sweet and savoury. Students should bring an apron for each class as well as a Tupperware container to take leftovers home in.
Ages 5-10: STEM Challenges
Science, Technology, Engineering and Math! Each STEM challenge class will introduce a principle, and in small groups or teams, students will participate in a challenge that works on applying the principle. Some examples of the challenges include making marble runs, soap powered boats, and balloon powered cars! Under the direct supervision of a teacher, students will be taught to safely work with materials such as glue guns, pulleys and levers, pliers, exacto knives and batteries. At the end of each class, students will present their ideas to their peers. This is a great hands-on class that involves exploration, critical thinking, public speaking and inventing!
Ages 5-10: Marine Biology
With so many interesting sea creatures and aquatic plants, who doesn’t love exploring beaches? Weather dependent, we will go to the beach at the end of Stephens Street each class with a focus on a different aspect of marine biology. As a young biologist, you’ll develop important skills such as observing, documenting and comparing. For classes where it’s raining and we are staying indoors, we will learn about other marine life, including sharks, coral reefs and jellyfish!
