Our Quran teachers teach children how to recognise the Arabic letters in their various forms in their daily one-hour sessions. They then move onto teaching the children how to read words and eventually sentences in Arabic which are taken directly from the Quranic verses. With a focus on tajweed, a set of rules governing the way in which the words of the Quran are pronounced, children become fluent with reading by KS2. Children are also given the opportunity to memorise chapters of the Quran and learn the context behind which some chapters were revealed. We take pride in the children’s memorisation and application of tajweed rules by holding regular in-school Quran competitions. Children of all ages work hard to take part and winners are awarded with trophies.
