The building blocks of faith for your child
Olive Tree Study aims to provide a sound and accurate approach to our teaching. When your child enters our school he/she will begin the critical stages of building a profound foundation in the Islamic faith through exposure to Quranic, Islamic & Arabic Studies. The subjects are taught by specialised subject teachers. Each class has an appropriate pace and differentiation so learners will progress largely according to their own ability and speed. Please note that below is only a summary of our syllabus. Full details are given to pupil once they are enrolled.
There are four lessons per day:
In between each lesson, we have short breaks including a break for light lunch and salah.
Our purpose of the Quran lessons is to ensure that the children not only learn to memorise and read the Quran with accuracy, but also enjoy the process of learning. We incorporate many creative and innovative pedagogy in our Quran lesson, all which is evident on our youtube channel.
In each lesson of the Quranic study, levels have been created to give a guideline to teachers and pupils.
Our aim is for children to speak and understand Arabic language fluently in order for them to access the Quran and sacred knowledge to a much deeper level. The Arabic lesson will mainly comprised of speaking & listening, writing and comprehension. Older children will be studying from child friendly Arabic text book. The books are well structured and are designed to teach Arabic in a non Arabic speaking environment to learners from a broad age range. Younger pupils will be focusing on learning a range a Arabic vacabs to increase their vocabulary.
In this part of the lesson we are dedicated to exclusively teaching Islamic studies and citizenship. Pupil from the age of five and above will be studying from Islamic educational books which cover a wide range of subjects including Aqidah, Fiqh and Akhlaaq. Books have been carefully selected by Olive Tree Study management as they come in different grades and they are colorful, high quality and packed full of creative activities to make learning fun and enjoyable.
