FS2

The Egyptian Culture programme for FS2 has been especially designed for MNS students to develop their curiosity and fascination about their own heritage and home land and to provide great knowledge of Egypt’s past. This is all done through weekly lessons, interesting stories, various projects, hands-on activities and field trips. The aim is to increase the sense of belonging to their country Egypt and to be able to understand, accept and appreciate.

Key Stage 1

At MNS, the Humanities curriculum for Key stage one consists of Sociology, History, Geography and Egyptian Culture. This curriculum has been designed to develop our students’ curiosity and fascination, not only about their own heritage and home land, but about the wider world and its people as well. The humanities programme encourages students to ask questions, think critically, weigh-up evidence and develop judgment. This is all done through weekly lessons, various projects, hands-on activities and regular field trips.

The Egyptian Culture programme alongside Humanities deals with the different cultural aspects and concepts of Egypt’s culture and provides great knowledge of Egypt’s past.

The aim of this curriculum is to expand the students’ general knowledge and have them understand and appreciate their culture, history and traditions as well as understand and respect the world around them.

Key Stage 2, 3

 The Humanities program is carefully designed to help students:

  • Open up windows to the world’s different civilizations, cultures, norms, history and beliefs giving them a broad and better understanding so that they interact effectively to create a harmonious responsible society.
  • Critique and debate opposing ideas and international conflicts, proposing just and balanced resolutions that pave the road for a world where human rights and democracy prevail.
  • Have positive human-environmental interactions that help maintain and preserve the wellbeing and sustainability for future generations

This program cultivates and nurtures patriotism and the love of country in the soul of students as Egyptian citizens.

It is all done through weekly sessions, experiential learning, hands-on activities and educational field Trips.

Experiential learning:

  • Is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as “learning through reflection on doing”.
  • It makes learning an experience that moves beyond the classroom and strives to bring a more involved way of learning.

 Educational field trips:

  • Trips offer the students the opportunity to;
    • Have practical understanding of Egypt’s Monuments and places of attraction.
    • Nourish the sense of belonging to their homeland.
    • Develop the skill of respecting and following rules and regulations of sites as responsible young visitors.
