INDEPENDENT TRIPS starting this weekend

INDEPENDENT TRIPS starting this weekend

As we approach the Exhibition, it is important we allow the students to practice the skills they are going to need when the Exhibition work starts in April. One of the skills they will need to use is their ‘organizational skills’ when they will have to make their own contacts to visit different people as they inquire into their Exhibition issue.

In readiness for that we are encouraging the students in this unit to see if they can arrange their own ‘historical’ trip connected with our unit of Where We Are in Place and Time.

Students have been asked to do ONE the following:

1. Try and arrange a trip with your family/friends during the weekend of November 27th/28th
2. Try and arrange a trip with your family/friends during the weekend of December 5th/6th
3. Try and arrange a trip with your family/friends in school time between November 30th – December 4th (not the day you are going to SWW). This can be from 11.40am onwards
4. Try and arrange a trip with your family/friends after school time between November 30th – December 4th (not the day you are going to SWW).
5. Arrange a trip for Thursday 4th December with Mr F and Mr Charles to Mathaf if you are unable to go on a trip with your family/friends

If you are doing a trip in your own time, you will need to collect a work sheet but there is no need to let your teacher know details.

If you are doing a trip in school time, you will need to collect a work sheet and you will need to let your teacher know details of who is going on the trip, which parent is in charge and the mobile numbers.


Souq Waqif, Katara, Sheik Faisal Museum, Museum of Islamic Art, Mathaf are the ‘historical’ places we would like the students to visit.

Arabic B WWAPT

Dear Parents,

During the next 6 weeks, we will start a new unit (WWAPT). The students will learn about the connection between the past and the present and this with the music. They will explore the history of the music and investigate the variety of music instruments around the world.

Students will learn in Arabic about the families and the music at old times. They will learn some Arabic characters, spell, read and compose some sentences related to the subject.

This unit will consist of conducting research, participating in a field trip to a music center, writing, developing oral and poster presentations creating personal reflections.
At the end of the unit, students will make a celebration during which they can play music and enjoy.

Your assistance in encouraging your child to make this Unit successful is required and appreciated.

Arabic B Teacher
