Science Yr5-8

Science with Kate Dunn


For home educated students 9-12yrs (Yr5-8)

In term two we are exploring home chemistry. We’ll learn about a whole lot of different things, including: colour chromatography, acids and bases, enzymes, abrasives, chemicals in everyday products, detergents, rising agents and more! Each week we’ll learn about a different aspect of chemistry, with lots of experiments and educational activities along the way. We will be recording some of our results in writing, like good scientists, which is why this class is limited to older children (9 to 12 year olds). 

This class will have a relaxed atmosphere, with conversation and lots of fun, as well as some great learning going on. Parents are welcome to stay to help or leave their children.


Kate’s art class runs weekly out of the North Shore YMCA to coincide with other HASCA and homeschool activities which happen there each week! (See ‘What’s On?!’ )

Kate is a wonderful teacher and an excellent communicator. Be encouraged to try her classes – your children will thoroughly enjoy them!
