ARABIC, ISLAMIC STUDIES, MORAL EDUCATION & UAE SOCIAL STUDIES
All of our children learn Arabic and Social Studies in line with UAE law.
Arabic Language Studies
Learning Arabic is crucial for both cognitive development and the maintenance of cultural identity. Our Arabic curriculum is concept- and enquiry-based and is based on the UAE national curriculum. Arabic is compulsory for Arab nationals, and Arabic as a foreign language is required for students through to Year 9.
Successful learning in these subjects, as any other, depends heavily on high quality teaching. Just as we enhance the curriculum in other subjects, we also ensure the learning of Arabic is inspiring and relevant to students. Our Arabic colleagues work hand-in-hand with English class teachers to ensure a consistent experience for children, and equally amazing progress.
It is compulsory for all Muslim students to study Islamic Studies. Aquila provides the highest possible standard of Arabic through guided reading and talking for writing to develop students’ skills by using 21st century skills in teaching. In the Islamic education we develop the student’s personality to develop independent, responsible citizens by using a ‘skills-based’ approach.
