At AWS we are dedicated to creating a nurturing yet challenging environment for our Key Stage 1 students (aged between 5 and 7). We work hard to maintain a smooth shift from Early Years into the Primary section. Homeroom teachers follow the University of Cambridge Curriculum for literacy and numeracy. Science classes in AWS foster the spirit of scientific enquiry and are investigative in nature. We adapt the curriculum to the needs of students in Bahrain.
Our students also attend specialist classes for Music, Physical Education, Information Technology, Art and Design. Furthermore, we develop their ICT skills in well-maintained ICT labs. Students’ creativity and uniqueness are honed and developed in Art and Design.
We offer a number of extracurricular activities and field trips to inspire independence and confidence in young learners. Al Wisam School is committed to safeguarding cultural values while providing the best in Western education.
We are steadfast in our belief in polishing individual achievement and highly value the uniqueness of individuals. We offer one on one care to students and nurture their intellect and distinctiveness. Our teachers are internationally trained, exceptional and experienced educators. We also have teaching assistants in each class who provide a warm environment for young students.
PRIMARY SCHOOL is the term of four years of schooling between Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6, when the pupils are aged between 7 and 11 years.
At AWS, learners in primary school build on the skills, knowledge and understanding learnt during Key stage 1. Students develop language skills in an integrated programme of speaking, listening, reading and writing. The mathematics curriculum framework explores five content areas: number, geometry, measure, handling data and problem-solving. This curriculum focuses on principles, patterns, systems, functions and relationships so that learners can apply their mathematical knowledge and develop a holistic understanding of the subject. Young learners at AWS develop their scientific temperament. They are taught about the interdependence of organisms, sustainability of Earth and how things work. Learners are taught to relate their scientific skills, knowledge and understanding of applications of science in everyday life, including current issues.
Specialist department caters to developing music skills and precise. Children learn the intricacies of theatre in drama class. German skills are developed in the school with small nuggets of knowledge so learners are challenged and yet comfortable with the learning process.
We have an interactive, hands-on approach to learning. Learners are presented with experiences and opportunities to imbibe real-life scenarios for their education. They understand and express ideas and information confidently and creatively in more than one language and in a variety of modes of communication. They work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others. We instil in our student's strong moral values so they act with a robust sense of fairness, justice and respect for the dignity of the individual, groups and communities. They take responsibility for their own actions and the consequences that accompany them.
