Our Grade 4 Program requires students to use their knowledge and skills in listening, reading, and writing to critically reflect, analyze, and interact with a wide range of literary genres. Students learn to use text features and stylistic elements to construct meaning, going beyond the literal interpretation of the text. Our program places a strong emphasis on contextual learning, actively creating opportunities for kinaesthetic learning. This approach to learning is most visible in our science division which emphasizes hands-on experiments.The heart of our French program begins in grade four; student learning extends beyond oral communication, students begin reading and writing French. Quranic Arabic is divided into two levels: level 1 and level 2. Level 1 supports students who are still developing key concepts. Level 2 caters to students who are meeting and/or exceeding curricular expectations. Our level 2 programming focusses on providing a deeper understanding of various surahs, arabic grammar, and tafseer. Students will memorize chapters from Juzz Amma. Students learn about Islamic identity in North America and continue to gain knowledge in Islamic studies and Arabic. Our teachers strive to foster, develop, and model Islamic values both inside and outside of the classroom.
