CORE 0 - 1 JUNIOR ATLAS KIT

Made up of two resources:
The first resource is a friendly introduction to places and people around the world. Every continent has its own section including political and thematic maps, facts and figures to compare, beautiful photographs illustrating landscape features and aspects of everyday life. There is also a useful introduction to mapping and a section on world flags.

The second atlas, although slightly more advanced, is still very accessible. It teaches children how to use maps including map symbols, scale, direction, longitude and latitude. Thematic maps and charts, diagrams and large scale regional maps cover the British Isles. Thematic maps, charts, political maps and more offer an introduction to the World while physical maps of each continent introduce children to the geographical features of each continent.

This kit is offered from Core 0 through to Core 1. It is sufficiently advanced to even be used in Core 2 as well.

Twelve, easy=to-implement, ideas for theme gardens are covered that you and your child can grow together. Charlotte Mason would be pleased to know that included in this course are “discovery walks”. Our kinaesthetic children will love the activities and crafts!

Safety and Avoiding Everyday Dangers
Keeping our children safe in a complex world is one of the greatest challenges parents face today. This Core 0 Life-Skills component explores situations our children might encounter while at home, out and about or during play.
Topics addressed include bicycle safety, phone calls, broken glass, poisonous plants, electrical fires, stuck in a lift, sliding glass doors, stray dogs, house fires, intruders, home hazards, and much, much more! There are so many topics in this resource that we, as parents, forget to mention to our children. Invaluable!

Date, Season and Weather board
Your children will update this magnetic calendar every day. They will attach the new day of the week, date (including month) describe the weather and the season. Through repetition your child will learn to spell, become more familiar with the passage of time and have lots of fun. Very sturdy and colourful, this is a wonderful investment for any home-school!

NO ENGINE ROOM FOR THIS SUBJECT… SIMPLY WORK AT YOUR OWN PACE AND ENJOY!

CORE 0 TEACHER PACK - COMPULSORY

This resource is compulsory with the purchase of ANY Core 0 subjects; and includes the following:

A Full Colour Timetable that coincides with the design of the Engine Rooms for each subject

An Attendance Register (I know this sounds a little superfluous; however it is a prerequisite from the Department of Education that parents keep an attendance register. It’s kind of an occupational hazard that our children tend to attend our home-school, given that we live under the same roof!)

A Mark Record Sheet per subject, which affords you the opportunity to keep a record of your child’s performance in each aspect of a subject, (e.g. project work, speed tests, spelling tests, essay work etc.)

A Progress Record Sheet which allows you to see at a glance how each subject is tracking in terms of completion against the 36 week timeline.
