Programme of Study

Curriculum Overview 

At our Al Uwainat Campus, we house our KG 1 to Gr 3 classes. 

Kindergarten (KG 1 and 2)

We base our curriculum on the UK Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) but we believe in a flexible approach adapting the curriculum to meet the needs of our local and international students.

The Early Years Foundation Stage programme has 7 areas of learning.

3 Prime Areas:

Communication and Language: English (Arabic and French/Urdu are also included, at introductory levels)

Physical Development

Personal, Social and Emotional Development

4 Specific Areas:

Literacy

Mathematics

Understanding the World – Science, and Technology

Expressive Arts and Design

Each area of learning is implemented through planned, purposeful play and through a mix of child-initiated/adult-led activities. 

There are four guiding principles that shape our Early Years practice:

Unique child: Every child is a unique individual who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.

Positive relationships: Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.

Enabling environments: Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs.

Learning and development: We recognize that all children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.

Arabic and Islamic Studies are mandatory for citizens of Middle Eastern nations. Citizens of other nations study French/Urdu and Arabic Foreign Language.

Cambridge Pathway students have the chance to acquire the knowledge and skills they need to achieve at school, university and beyond.

The four stages lead seamlessly from primary to secondary and pre-university years. Each stage – Cambridge PrimaryCambridge Lower SecondaryCambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced – builds on the learners’ development from the previous one, but can also be offered separately.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cambridge Primary curriculum

English

This curriculum develops learners’ speaking, listening, reading and writing skills in English. It has been developed in conjunction with Cambridge Assessment English and is based on the Council of Europe’s Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), used across the world to map learners’ progress in English. 

Mathematics

The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem-solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions, and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject.

Science

This curriculum framework covers four content areas: scientific enquiry, biology, chemistry, and physics. Scientific enquiry is about considering ideas, evaluating evidence, planning, investigating, recording and analyzing data. Environmental awareness and some history of science are also part of the curriculum.

Arabic and Islamic Studies are mandatory for citizens of Middle Eastern nations. Citizens of other nations study French/Urdu and Arabic Foreign Language.
