(April 9, 2017 – April 13, 2017)
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the EMS Primary School.
We are thrilled to work with such a dynamic and diverse group of educators at EMS. Our teachers are committed to developing the whole child and to fostering intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth in each of our students. Our teachers build relationships with students and target each student’s individual needs. Each member of our staff models and emulates our School-wide Expectations for Self-Directed Learners (ESLRs) to help students be successful at school and to become life-long learners. The School serves a population of over 40 nationalities and employs an international and culturally diverse qualified faculty.
In the Primary School, the Cambridge International Primary Programme (CIPP) is followed in Year 1 to Year 6. The CIPP develops English, Mathematics and Science skills. In addition to these core subjects, the school provides a curriculum in Social Studies, PE, Art and ICT developed from the UK National Curriculum Programmes of Study. Our language of instruction is English. There is also an emphasis placed on Arabic, Islamic Studies and Qatar History as required by the SEC. We provide Global Studies lessons for non-Islamic students.
Carrying forward where we left off last year, we will continue to implement the research-based best practice of The Readers and Writers Workshop to deliver our CIPP Curriculum. Students are given the opportunity to write in a variety of genre and helps foster a love of writing. The Workshop Model allows teachers to meet the needs of their students by differentiating their instruction and gearing instruction based on information gathered during the workshop. We will also be implementing Guided Reading, and Investigations Maths that will allow us to individualise instruction for each and every pupil inclusively; within our classrooms.
As the Primary Principals, We look forward to meeting new and returning students and families of the English Modern School.
