In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

SATs take place in May and are far more formal than Key Stage 1, hence they seem much more stressful! The tests which are taken in year 6 cover the three core subjects, English, Maths and Science.The papers are sent away to be marked with results being available before your child leaves primary school in July. Level 4 represents achievement at the nationally expected  standard  for  most 11 year-olds.

The Stages

Children begin with the Foundation Stage curriculum & Islamic Studies in Reception and when they are ready, they will be gradually introduced to Key Stage 1 of the National Curriculum in preparation for Year 1. Pupils from Year 1 to Year 6 study Islamic Studies and the National Curriculum and work at their appropriate level.

At the end of Year 2 (which is the end of Keys Stage 1) children are assessed by their teachers and this reported to their parents. The government expects the average Year 2 pupil to achieve level 2B.There are three levels at Key Stage 1; level 1, level 2 (2C, 2B, 2A with 2C being below average and 2A being above average), Level 3. Level 3 is highest level a Year 2 pupil can achieve.

Children in Year 3 begin the first year of Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum and this is continued into Year 4/5. When children reach the end of Year 6 they are assessed again through written tests as they have completed studying Key Stage 2 of the National Curriculum.

Islamic Studies
The following are the term plans for each class.

Narrated Abu Mas'ud Al-Ansari:

The Prophet (sallallahu alayhi wa salam) said, "When a Muslim spends something on his family intending to receive Allah's reward it is regarded as Sadaqa for him."

Autumn Term

The Curriculum

We want children to learn and have fun whilst they are learning.  We know they will only learn if they feel safe and secure and hence we do spend a considerable amount of time in settling the children into school when they first start. Whilst in FS2, KS1 & KS2 children will have the opportunity to learn Islamic Studies and the National Curriculum subjects (English, Maths, Science, Information and Communication Technologies, Religious Education, History, Geography, Physical Education, Art and Design Technology).

In our school we teach the National Curriculum to Years 1-6 and the Foundation Stage curriculum to our children in Reception. We aim to move the children on with their learning by finding out what they can and cannot do and then plan accordingly. Teachers review pupil progress on a regular basis and there are opportunities for parents and teachers to meet termly.

At the end of the school year parents receive a report of their child's progress in writing. Parents and teachers are encouraged to talk to each other if there are any concerns as they arise, rather than wait for a formal Parents' Meeting.

Fruits & Veg in the Qur'an
Halaqa time/ circle time

The Halaqah (circle time) teaches humility and generates a spiritual atmosphere. Whenever possible, the halaqah is conducted daily and is the first item of the morning schedule. Children and their teacher sit in a circle on the floor and begin and end with a du’a or recitation of the Qur’an. Sitting on the floor or a carpet as an action in itself teaches humility.  It also generates an atmosphere of spirituality and developing a relationship with Allah swt as children are reminded of the hadith that angels encircle any gathering of remembrance of Allah ta’ala.

Developing Shakhsiyah: The halaqah develops  personality (shakhsiyah). In the halaqah the teaching is purely oral and there are no exercises or written tasks. This leads to a constant focus on the thinking of the children as well as their behaviour.
