English+STEAM – SISD
Jan 14, 2018



Our  International English+STEAM  programme in Primary follows the framework of the IB Primary Years Programme

This programme allows students to develop a wider range, wider scope of knowledge in the STEAM areas through project-based learning.​ All subjects are taught in English and learners attend three additional language lessons per week. During these lessons, the qualified additional language teacher communicates systematically in the target language, using an inquiry-driven approach while following a specific language acquisition curriculum. Learners build the communicative language skills and competencies they will use as global citizens. The school’s unique international and multilingual environment provides students with authentic exposure to French, German and Arabic through the daily contact with native speakers.
