Primary School K-Grade 5

Students spend time each week studying within the Arabic programme, which includes Arabic Language, Units of Inquiry (Social Studies & Science), Mathematics and Religious Studies.  In addition, the English Language, Unit of Inquiry (Social Studies & Science) form the backbone of the English component of the programme.

 

French is introduced as an additional language in Grades 4 and 5 and delivered by a specialist teacher. Music, Dance, Drama, Physical Education and Art, in Grades 1-5 are also delivered by specialist teachers. In addition to this, Media Centre Specialists help integrate (Information and Communication Technologies) ICT and Information Literacy skills into the curriculum. 

 

Throughout the school year, the students study six Units of Inquiry apart from KG 1 where four units are studied. Regardless of the grade level, these Units revolve around core Global Themes that integrate many subject areas, or disciplines. These themes help teachers and students explore knowledge and make meaningful learning connections between subjects through Units of Inquiry.

 

These “Transdisciplinary Themes” include:

  • Who we are
  • Where we are in place and time
  • How we express ourselves
  • How the world works
  • How we organise ourselves
  • Sharing the planet

 

 

Concept driven curriculum:

At the centre of the curriculum are key concepts/big ideas that have relevance within and across subject areas. These are explored through questions, which help structure the inquiry.

 

Form - What is it like?              Connection - How is it connected to other things? 
 Function – How does it work?  Perspective – What are the points of view?
 Causation – Why is it like it is?  Responsibility – What is our responsibility?
 Change – How is it changing?  Reflection – How do we know?

 

Throughout the students’ learning experiences, they acquire and apply a set of skills across all curricular areas. 

These transdisciplinary skills include:

 

 Thinking   Sef-Management 
  Social   Research
  Communication
