The Curriculum-British National
The School follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)Curriculum, which is the regulatory framework for the provision of learning, development, and care for children. The Curriculum intends to ensure that every child is considered a competent learner who, with appropriate nurturing support, can become resilient, capable and self-assured.
We place high importance on a positive and fun start to school for our youngest learners. Children enter our KG-1 to Grade-12 program of learning at four years of age and we wrap care and comfort around each child as they begin their exciting learning journey of discovery at BIS Ajman.
Our rich and nurturing bi-lingual (English/Arabic) environment provides many opportunities for the development of concepts, language and new skills as children learn to socialize and gain confidence in small steps each day.
This is the time when children start to develop increasing independence. They are forming new friendships with their peers although their relationship with their primary caregivers is still crucial and our teachers ensure warmth and positivity is wrapped around children in KG1 and KG-2.
The curriculum focuses on reading, writing, and mathematics to give students a positive foundation for their educational journey at BIS Ajman. We also encourage pupils to stay physically active and learn skills such as balance and coordination as they develop gross and fine motor skills.

Communication and language development involve giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations.

Literacy development is to link sounds and letters and begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems and other written materials) to ignite their interest.
Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction
problems; and to describe shapes, spaces and measure.
6.Understanding of the world
Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment.
7. Expressive arts and design
Expressive arts and design involve enabling children to explore and play with a wide range of media and materials, as well as providing opportunities and encouragement for sharing their thoughts, ideas and feelings through a variety of activities in art, music, movement, dance, Role play, design and technology. Our number one priority is to ensure that our students receive the best possible start in life. Our qualified staff provides them with all the support that they need to reach their maximum potential.
Arabic skills include listening, speaking, reading, writing, viewing, and
presenting in Arabic. Real experiences with vocabulary, conversation and early letter forming produce confident children who are able to communicate in both English and Arabic.
