Junior Saturday Club for Term 2 will focus on the theme Maths is Fun. There will be two sessions on cryptology and then two sessions on number games and primes.

The session presenter will be Lionel Bentley (our Saturday Club Co-ordinator) with a background in engineering and a love for math and engaging gifted and talented children

Junior (5-8 years)

Session One (8 May 2021) - Cryptology : A quick revisit of how to use a code wheel and basic historical ciphers (2019 session revision ). We will then look at some historical physical code methods, then transposition ciphers which require a frame and a Vigenere Cipher which requires a key word.

Session Two (22 May 2021) – Code Breaking - Previously the junior class has looked at how we use language frequency analysis to break codes in english. This time we will look at how languages vary and how this may influence our ability to break a code

Session Three (5 Jun 2021) – Maths of the Run. During this session the kids will be taken through a series of games and thought provoking exercises that are designed to be used in daily life with family and friends

Session Four (19 June 2021) – Prime Time. Lets look at more than what is a prime but primes in nature and primes in our daily life. We will look at how we find mega Primes and what we can do with them. Large primes will for this generation underpin secure banking and currencies like bitcoin.

Intermediate (8-12 yrs) and Senior (12-17yrs)

It is likely that late this year early next year we will have a federal election. So what better time to look and the concept of government and political models.

The topics offered to both age groups will be the same but delivered separately so that students can look at the topic from different levels of experience and maturity.

Session 4 ( 19 Jun 2021): Who gets to Choose?

Session 1: What is Government Anyway?

The presenters using their secondary school politics and civics knowledge will explore what a government is and then as a group come up with the perfect one. (Such a simple task, right!!)

Session 2:Lording it Up

This week we learn about Feudalism and Monarchy by creating our own mini feudal society. After some game play the group will explore how the whole system worked. We'll ask questions of power, fairness and equity.

Session 3: Power to the People!

This week the groups will view a video which documents an experiment surrounding the concepts of Socialism and Capitalism. The groups will then deep dive into these two ideas which are arguably significant elements of some modern societies.

Session 4: Who gets to Choose?

This week the groups will play a game based on the comparative ideas of Democracy and Autocracy. After the fun we'll discuss our thoughts and feelings about each these types of government.
