In 2013, we have decided to continue with a theme for each term to inspire ideas for activities and outings. Term 1 is Science. From an organisational perspective, the themes have really helped with planning and having some continuity with the activities planned. Some themes we explored last year were food, and art (LOTS of fun, and a challenge for some of us)...
The science activites we have planned include:
Ten Pin Bowling (physics, right?)
Science in the Kitchen
Science with Music
Adventures in Anatomy
Further Adventures in Anatomy
Your Amazing Senses
Most of the days will include several 'stations' with demonstrations, experiments, activities, presentations by visiting professionals and shared resources. This co-operative learning will be aimed at all ages from toddlers through to teenagers - so a lot of planning and preparation has gone into this term!
And as usual, we will take the opportunity to be together, share some food and fun and laughs. ATHENS is as much about support and friendship as education.
