Arabic and Islamic Studies
We teach Arabic to all Arabic children from year 1, and social studies and citizenship from year 2. We also teach Islamic Studies to all Muslim pupils from year 2 upwards, and this is taught in Arabic.
It is important to us that Arabic and Muslim pupils develop a love of learning for all Arabic Studies and Islamic Studies lessons. Although we follow the Bahrain National Curriculum during these lessons, we ensure that the styles of teaching and learning behaviours are similar to those throughout the school.
Arabic for non-Arabic children
For our non-Arabic children, we have Arabic culture lessons that teach them (in English) about important Arabic culture, traditions and festivals. They also learn some basic conversational Arabic language.
