Curriculum

A.   Curriculum

The curriculum areas are the organizers for ensuring that learning takes place across a broad range of contexts, and offer a way of grouping experiences and outcomes under recognizable headings.

The Curriculum Areas in EFA School System are:

The area of General Knowledge helps the children to enhance and improve their knowledge about the basic and interesting things about the world around them. It also caters to basic information regarding the subjects of Islamiat, Social Studies and Science.

3- Music

Singing songs and reciting poems and rhymes with children helps them develop early literacy skills. Keeping a steady beat develops language. Clapping hands, stamping feet, and using rhythm instruments in time to music develops important pre-reading skills. Young children recognize words, sounds, rhythms, tones, and pitches long before they talk or sing,. So, the more music your children have in their lives, the better they will speak and read.
