We believe we can make Islamic Education and Arabic language more interesting and meaningful for our students by empowering them to communicate with the community around them in Arabic. The founders and leadership of WP School have developed a clear and ambitious vision in teaching Arabic Language and Islamic Education for all grades. Arabic Language is the most important subject in the school curriculum, based on the language of the Qura’an and the culture of UAE. The leadership of the school was keen to adopt the standards of the Ministry of Education for all levels and skills and for all students, whether Arab or non-Arab students. Learning will focus on experiencing the culture: through songs, stories, or tales from the Arabic speaking world. Experiential learning will steer your child to be immersed in the rich heritage of the UAE and the entire Arab world. Pervasive use of Metaverse and 21 st century learning skills will raise the level of the Arabic language and Islamic Education to high levels of quality. Within Islamic Studies, we integrate the foundations of scientific literacy and WPS Learning habits. Our school is equipped with dedicated facilities for ablution and prayer. The school leadership adopted this dynamic policy because Arabic language is at the heart of the UAE’s senior leadership, which aims to foster a community culture, support Islamic education and enable students to communicate fluently in UAE’s multinational and multicultural society.
The Woodlem Park School Early Years Foundation Stage comprises of 2 stages, KG1 & KG2. Initiation into the school through fun-filled and stimulating activities by caring teachers helps each student to view schooling very positively, an attitude which contributes immensely towards developing lifelong learning skills. This ensures that the transition from home to school is easy and enjoyable. The learning in a safe, secure, and happy environment leads to healthy social and interactive skills, greater self-esteem, and good development of basic cognitive and motor abilities.
Our aim at Woodlem Park School, Al Hamidiya Private is to ensure the holistic development of all students as every child is unique. The Foundation Stage curriculum is a blend of EYFS and PYP specifically designed to provide opportunities for students to explore and investigate, share thoughts, ideas and feelings through a play based approach to learning.
The PYP offers an inquiry-based, transdisciplinary curriculum framework that builds conceptual understanding. It is a student-centered approach to education for children aged 3-12. It reflects the best of educational research, thought leadership and experience. The framework emphasizes the central principle of agency, which underpins the three pillars of school life:
Embedded in the framework is the recognition of the importance of fostering an individual’s self-efficacy. Students use their initiative to take responsibility and ownership of their learning. Students develop knowledge, conceptual understandings, skills and the attributes of the Learner profile to make a difference in their own lives, their communities, and beyond.
All the seven areas of learning are important and are linked to each other. A combination of both play and hands on activities form the foundation of the learning in the early years. A lot of care is taken in planning and delivery of the curriculum which is a balance of child led and adult initiated activities to meet the needs of all groups of students. The Woodlem Park School, Al Hamidiya believes in fostering the relationship between home and school to wider community. The young learners feel secure, safe and happy in the nurturing environment of the foundation stage. The Foundation Stage children are suitably prepared for literacy and numeracy. Phonic methods and well-graded writing patterns follow a comprehensive foundation-building programme focusing on listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The programme is geared for developing self-esteem, social and interactive skills, in addition to the basic cognitive and motor abilities. Learning takes place directly through formal teaching
including ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and an activity-based programme. The focus is on both individuals as well as group activities. Integration of Theme based learning and coding into the curriculum is an intrinsic feature of learning in the Foundation Stage.
