Our curriculum focuses on 4 key skills, in line with the methods of assessment at GCSE Arabic.
At this stage each student is required to develop their writing abilities. This will be achieved by practicing letter writing, writing speeches, short stories, CV’s and more.
For this level, each student is require do read plenty of both classical works and modern writings. Classical material such as select passages of the Qur’an, Hadeeth, Classical poems and short stories. They will also be required to read modern materials such as conversations, public speeches, letters and much more.
It is required at this level to have plenty of exposure to the Arabic language. We have therefore prepared for each student hours of Arabic conversations, poem recitals, and more in order for each student to train their ears to recognise the Arabic language.
A large focus for KS3 is for each student to become fluent in speaking and dialogue. The student needs to be able to respond spontaneously to questions, engage in conversation and ask questions of their own. We will also focus on developing the ability to describe what one seems in imagery or express their feelings about various topics.
Key Concepts Of Key Stage 3
Below are some key concepts that will be covered at this level.
Grammar Of Arabic Verbs
During this stage you will learn about the grammar related to the Arabic verb, for example which words change a verb’s state, and how those changes affect the meaning.
It’s About What I Want
You will cover a very important milestone in studying the Arabic language, which is the ability to request items you want and actions you want done.
Arabic Verb Morphology
Arabic Verbs follow set rules and principles that govern how they change from past tense to other tense. During this term you will study what happens when weak letters are used in the beginning, middle and end of a word.
After completing studies of volumes 1 and 2 of the Madeenah Series and al-Aajuroomiyyah, this level will cover the main elements of Arabic Grammar, briefly covering 90% of the different elements of the Arabic Language. This is a necessary revision before embarking upon the science of Sarf – morphology – which is the main focus of Level 4.
Taking It A Step Further
After starting off the term with a brief overview of Arabic Grammar, you will also be introduced to more complex types of sentences and will be required to use the knowledge you’ve learnt to understand the Qur’an and the Sunnah.
Names Of Things
As level 4 focuses on the science of ‘Sarf’ (morphology), you will start off learning the patterns that define ‘who’ does actions, ‘who’ receives actions, ‘where’ and ‘when’ actions take place and the names of the ‘tools’ used to perform such actions.
