Qur’anic Arabic

 

Shakhsiyah Schools aim to be bilingual schools teaching Qur’anic Arabic to all our children through infusing it into our holistic curriculum. We aim to give all our children access to the Qur’an through understanding the language for themselves. Our aim is nothing less than Balagha (eloquence) in Qur’anic Arabic. Non-Arabic speaking children who have studied at Shakhsiyah have taken GCSE Arabic at ages 11-15 and gained A* and A grades, they have gone on to take AS and A-level Arabic at ages 15-19 and have again achieved A grades. Some of our alumni have been inspired to study Arabic at degree level. 

Our Qur’anic Arabic programme has been in development for over fifteen years and our teachers have produced a unique Arabic Curriculum with schemes of work that tie in with the Shakhsiyah Creative Curriculum and are infused with Islam. The Arabic language programme incorporates a Hifdh and Tajweed programme. Foremost in our approach is developing a love of Qur’an and the language of the Qur’an in the hearts of our children.

 

The basic components of Arabic teaching at ISF are:

 

Hifdh: Memorisation of Juz ‘Amma and selected Suraat including learning the meaning and tafsir

Language: Speaking, Reading and Writing

Tajweed: The rules of Qur’anic recitation  

 

Hifdh Programme

 

Hifdh is an essential part of our curriculum. Children not only memorise Juz Amma and other Surat but they also learn the meaning and message of these Surat. Through Hifz children’s love of the Qur’an deepens and their capacity to appreciate its beauty increase. Our aim is that our children become living embodiments of the Qur’an.

Children who are learning hifdh at home and have already memorised these Surat will memorise further Surat usually Surah Dukhan or another appropriate Surah.

 

Qur’anic Arabic as a Language


We have devised our own unique curriculum of speaking, reading and writing Arabic language. Even the youngest children are encouraged to use Arabic phrases and terminology wherever possible. Arabic texts are selected in an age appropriate manner to enable children to develop fluency in reading. To enhance children’s Islamic vocabulary allowing them access to Islamic sources, Arabic texts about Islam are selected wherever possible. Children begin to compose Arabic sentences in Early Years and are able to compose extended texts by Year 6. To establish a strong bilingual basis to the children’s experience children in Early Years classes have a full-time Arabic and English teacher.

 

Tajweed


Shakhsiyah Schools’ focus is not on being able to ‘read/recite’ Qur’an as the primary task but rather to learn and Qur’anic Arabic as a language, children may not have proficiency in recitation at an early age. Nevertheless through our approach to teaching Tajweed children are proficient in recitation and the rules of Tajweed when they leave the school. Parents do not need to send children to additional classes after school, they do however need to ensure children are revising Hifdh and practicing recitation at home daily. Please see guidance for parents as to how to support your child.
