INTRODUCTION
We understand, as parents, it is important for you to know what your child is learning in school. This
guide gives you a summary of the curriculum content your child will be learning each term in each
subject, the key learning objectives, key concepts and assessments will be throughout the academic
year. This document should be read in conjunction with the home learning policy. If you require any
further information or would like to make suggestions as to how we can ensure you have the key
information relevant to your child’s learning, please contact your child’s subject teacher, who will be
happy to help.

Key Stage 3 Curriculum overview
We aim to draw upon the best elements of the English National Curriculum, combined with the
depth and range of subjects which are appropriate to an international school in Dubai. The aim of our
curriculum is to challenge and inspire all learners to develop their skills and nurture values through a
love of learning so that they can responsibly embrace the diverse challenges of tomorrow. It is our
intention that students achieve a place at their first-choice university or chosen Post-18 pathway.

Our assessment philosophy aims to focus on what is important: students are able to view assess-
ments as opportunities to learn and develop, not as opportunities to be judged. Or, put simply,
students take responsibility for their own learning – they know what they need to be able to do, what
they can currently do, and what they need to improve on. The impact of developing engagement
with their own assessment capability at an early age will be two-fold:

 Academic success: maximising of potential in high stake public exams (GCSEs and A-Levels)
 Learning skills success: developing a wide range of learning skills in our students which supports
 their application to learning
Year-7 CURRICULUM booklet - HORIZON INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL
Parents will receive regular reports at appropriate times in the school year and will have the
opportunity to meet with their sons and daughters’ teachers. We actively encourage all students
and parents to attend Student/Parent Conferences which enable students to take responsibility for
their own learning as they grow in ‘assessment capability’.

Years 7-9
The curriculum is designed to give students a broad and balanced exposure to a wide variety of
subjects and to develop their learning skills. All students study the following subjects:

Arabic B
Overview
The Year 7 Arabic B curriculum focuses on enabling non-Arabic speakers who are learning Arabic to
communicate in real life situations inside and outside school. It is based on the standards set by the
American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), and based on international
principles and expectations applied in the teaching of foreign languages to non-native speakers. It’s
also adapted to meet the UAE's aspirations in learning of Arabic in a manner that suits the learners’
capabilities and their learning environment.

Overview
The Year 7 curriculum allows students to explore a wide variety of engaging texts that cover a range
of intriguing themes. In Year 7 students will build and develop the core literacy skills gained at prima-
ry level and it is our aim to ensure that these skills are embedded in all aspects of their independent
reading and writing. Oracy will form the basis of many of our lessons as we strive to create vibrant
learning environments where students are encouraged to verbalise well-crafted responses whilst
listening and challenging those of others. In the English Department we place a huge emphasis on
students’ personal reading to inspire creativity, prompt critical thinking and develop empathy.

Geography
Overview
The Year 7 curriculum allows students to explore the importance of Geography and its relevance in
the world. The curriculum explores both physical and human geography units and consolidates
learning that pupils would have developed at KS2. Pupils will learn to be curious, begin to ask big
questions and foster a fascination about the world and its people. Lessons in Year 7 will equip pupils
with knowledge about diverse places, people, resources and natural and human environments,
together with a deep understanding of the earth’s key physical and human processes.

History
Overview
The Year 7 curriculum allows students to explore and gain a coherent knowledge and understanding
of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. The curriculum inspires pupils to ask perceptive ques-
tions, think critically, weigh evidence, sift arguments, and develop perspective and judgement. Work
and understanding will be consolidated from pupils’ prior learning from KS2. Lessons in Year 7 will
help pupils to understand the complexity of people’s lives, the process of change, the diversity of
societies and relationships between different groups, as well as their own identity and the challenges
of their time.

Overview
The Year 7 curriculum provides opportunity to students to think critically and understand the
characteristics of good Muslim by doing, saying, feeling and acting in each phase of their life and able
to link it with their home country and UAE. The curriculum has all elements from Al-Quran, Hadeeth,
Islamic values, faith and biography of prophets in all units and consolidates learning that pupils
would have developed in previous year group. Pupils will be challenged to thoughtfully examine the
topics they are studying, to participate assertively in group discussion, to work productively in
cooperative learning activities, and to come to grips controversial issues. Such activities and
experiences will help foster the skills needed to produce competent Muslims who are capable of
presenting and defending their beliefs and principles effectively. This will also help students’
appreciation of the role and values of Islam in the society. In these, lessons pupil will get a chance to
learn independently to investigate the topic, learn surah with proper tajweed and meaning with
deep understanding as per their need.

Mathematics
Overview
The Year 7 Maths curriculum consists of 8 units (0-7). The curriculum is designed to ensure that,
regardless of their starting point, all students develop a solid foundation of Mathematics whilst also
providing the opportunity to stretch, challenge, provide mathematical fluency and provoke thought.
The curriculum includes a mix of new and familiar content. This is to ensure that students have
mastered the basic skills that provide the foundation for accessing higher level Mathematics. Much
of the challenge in the year 7 curriculum is provided through exploring familiar topics in more depth
and looking at them from a different perspective. Throughout the year, students will also focus on
developing mathematical skills such as approaches to problem solving, critical thinking, working
systematically and strategically, generalisation and analytical thinking.

Assessment
Assessment in Maths is divided into Casual and Professional Performances. Casual Performances are
the ongoing, informal in-class assessment that is designed to support students with making the
maximum amount of progress. These casual performances are not attached to grades and are solely
to provide information (to students and teachers) about individual and class areas for development.
Professional Performance in Maths is an assessment that produces a standardised grade, it is
designed to summarise a student’s progress at an “end point”. In Year 7, students will complete a
Professional Performance at the end of the Academic Year; as mandated by the KHDA this will be the
GL Progress Test 12 which is completed online.

Overview
The key stage 3 curriculum builds on the foundations covered in primary school whilst starting to
embed the skills that the pupils will need for the latest GCSE. With a fresh approach to traditional
topics that brings them right up to date, our French syllabus is packed with content to engage
pupils. Our course is fully integrated with our digital learning space, ActiveLearn, which helps pupils
practise their language skills and use language independently in the classroom and at home.
