Year-Reception (FOUNDATION)

Overview

Quran classes aim to teach students to read, memorise as well as translate. Students progress from gaining familiarity with Arabic and primary level reading (Level 1-4) up through to fluent reading (Level 5 to Quran). Students are taught to read Arabic text of the Holy Qur’an while applying the “Rules of Recitation (Tajweed)” by use of the rules of pause, alteration of the letter, thin sound vs. broad sound, and nasalization. Students memorise selected Surats from the last Juzz of the Holy Qur’an (Juzz Amma). Students also gain a general understanding of the meaning of some verses they are studying and they relate the Qur’an to their lives by analysing stories in the Qur’an, historical incidents and the moral lessons to be learned.

Lesson Structure

In Quran lessons students are in 2 groups, with the first group reading between the levels of 1-4, while the second group referring to students reading from Level 5 to Quran.

Islamic Studies

Islam teaches that human beings have a moral obligation to live in harmony with one another. Islam also recognizes and accords rights to all human beings regardless of race, colour or creed. The Islamic Studies curriculum at Garden College aims to embed this understanding amongst students whilst teaching students the fundamental practices and obligations that all humans must observe, to be responsible and active Muslims in an ever changing society.


 

Reception

Overview

At Garden College, Islamic Studies lessons primarily aim to allow students to develop a deep understanding of who their creator is and his divine attributes. In addition, Islamic Studies lessons also include the teaching of:

  • Aqeedah; to understand the creed that makes up Islam. This is divided into 6 parts.
  • Belief in God -Allah, the One and Only One worthy of all worship
  • Belief in the Angels – Mala’ikah
  • Belief in the Books sent by Allah (including the Qurʾān). – Kutub
  • Belief in all the Messengers sent by Allah – Rasul
  • Belief in the Day of Judgment and in the Resurrection (life after death) – Qiyamah
  • Belief in Destiny/Fate – Qadar
  • Seerah; to learn about the lives of Prophets from Adam (A.S) to Muhammed (S.A.W)
  • Fiqh; with hadiths from the Hanafi School of thought in accordance with the four recognized schools of thought
  • Adab and Akhlaq; through the teaching of daily duas and manners in everyday life for them to be constant remembrance of their Lord

Lesson Structure

Islamic Studies lessons aim to cultivate a love for Allah and his messenger and to establish a solid foundational understanding of the principles, practices and beliefs of Islam. Students will gain an awareness of Islam’s integral relevance to their daily lives and how this shapes the way they interact with and view the world. The Islamic Studies department aims to use a hands-on approach using a range of media (books, videos, Ipads, interactive whiteboard) and activities to enhance students’ interest and understanding to consolidate their learning.

Scope and Sequence

Each term, there will be an emphasis on one topic from Reception to Year 6 (as outlined in the table below) with minor focuses alongside it; which will include lessons from seerah, fiqh, adab and akhlaq.
