In this trial module, learners immerse themselves in the sounds of the animal kingdom. Starting by discovering some of the rules to animal classification, learners soon find themselves with enough expertise to code their very own animal orchestra. This is the perfect module to explore global skills based learning.
In this trial module, learners are challenged to use code to create the perfect backtrack to their very own nature documentary. By discovering the location and importance of animal communities, populations and ecosystems, learners can imagine the soundscape of a particular habitat and apply their understanding of the organisms found in a particular ecosystem. This is the ideal module to explore STEAM and skills based learning.
We know that children need more opportunities for collaboration and to build confidence in a fun yet nurturing environment.

Cat Weldon writes funny middle grade fantasy stories with a particular interest in offbeat fairy tales and world mythology. With a Master's degree in Scriptwriting and a background in children's theatre, Cat now splits her time between writing, teaching and making origami squirrels. Cat lives in East Anglia with her husband, two children and collection of delinquent chickens. How to Be a Hero is her first novel and she will be reading from her book live for learners to enjoy! Hurry and secure your spot as spaces are limited!
What is Neobael Book Club?
Each month, the Neobael Book Club recommends 6 of the best books for children aged 6 - 11. As well as a short review of each book, we recommend our "Book of the Month" and invite an author to virtually visit us @Neobael HQ! In addition they share their journey and tips and tricks through a QnA.
The journey from a good idea to a product is a long one....in fact, some might say the good idea is the easiest part! In this module learners work to design and sell a BBQ, exploring the science behind their product along the way. Pulling in key ideas of heat transfer, the class will explore the most suitable materials, shape and measurements for the perfect BBQ. They will also become more familiar with using G-suites to create an advert which utilises fact and opinion, as well programme a simple budget using spreadsheet formulas. This is the perfect module for any budding business people or learners interested in function and design.
In this 30 hour module, learners imagine themselves as a travel blogger planning a once in a lifetime trip to a rainforest. Fascinated by what they might find when they get there, this module is a mix of researching the unknown, purposefully asking why, and communicating effectively along the way. Concepts explored include explaining the science behind the rainforest climate, gaining a deeper understanding of communicating proportion using fractions and charts, and how to research without plagiarizing. The module culminates with an exciting journey into coding the perfect website to reach their followers! This is the perfect module to scientists, fledgling journalists and everyone in between.
Planning the perfect trip takes a lot of organisation and research, but how much thought does the average person put into picking the right bag for the journey? In this module, learners consider the effects of forces and the properties of materials in order to choose the ideal bag for the trip of their dreams. Integrating the skills needed to plan a fair investigation, collect and present valid data and create a podcast, this is much more scientific than choosing their favourite colour. At the end of this module students will have gained confidence in thinking analytically and communicating complicated ideas.

It's easy to view forces as an impossibly complex physics concept, but they become much simpler when we explore what they can do! In this module, learners start by working through a series of experiments to explore how we can measure force and incorporate our knowledge of forces into design. Alongside, they explore the running blades used by world class athletes, how humanitarian aid can be delivered by parachute and how we can present factual information using good literacy techniques.

Currently based in India, I am an educator with a deep love for literature. I have extensive experience in teaching English language and literature to a wide range of diverse learners across age groups. I take special interest in enhancing literary interest and inculcating an appreciation for written art forms among all learners. I keenly believe in creating learning pods that aid learning in an experiential and enjoyable manner and are developed along tenets of non-judgemental inquiry and endeavour. I focus on supporting the curriculum and coaching at Neobael through these beliefs and skills.
Currently based in Singapore, converting an idea into a robust and scalable business model is what excites me the most. Having lived, studied and worked in India, the United Kingdom, and Singapore, I have had first hand experience of understanding how formal education differs in these three countries. Being a parent to two young children, coupled with my experience in teaching and choreographing dance has led me to evaluate the need for alternative, innovative and integrated 21st century learning options for our younger generations.
Currently based in the United Kingdom, I come with a wealth of experience teaching English as a second Language. I strongly believe that learning pods are a place where hidden potentials of every child are discovered. It is then our job as educators to keep the children focused and motivated so they can envision their future success vividly and clearly. I enjoy guiding young minds through inquiry and am skilled in creating a calm, collaborative and creative learning environment for them.
