Key Stage 3

Literacy Personalized Reading Logs

The primary goal of MNS Reading Program in KS3 is to establish reading as a habit in the lives of Narmerians. Increased reading rates in addition to sustaining the pleasure and passion of young readers are encouraged through independent reading time with the reading teachers.

Students get to choose what to read, either through a list provided by the reading program teacher, or through the student’s own choice of books borrowed from MNS library. Each student’s willingness to read for different purposes, like pleasure, knowledge or understanding, is nurtured.

“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.” ― Charles W. Eliot.

  • Book Buddies

Once a term, KS1 and KS2 Book Buddies trade off jobs of reading instructors with young Narmerians. KS3 students take time to train rotating through each class of KS1, as the little ones are excited about the time they spend pairing with their seniors.

Teachers also enjoy exchanging thoughts and ideas about their reading class, students’ favourite genres, showing students by example the importance of reading despite the challenge of the increasingly demanding academic schedules.

A bookmark signed by KS3 students is given to little Narmerians in order to record an unforgettable Book Buddies quality time.

  • Presentations

Students get to express their own vision and speak out loud about their own beliefs through the personalized creation and design of presentations.
Out-of-the-box thinking is a fundamental tool towards tackling various topics.

Creating a perfect world “Utopia” – of highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities – is one of the topics that gives the students the opportunity to voice their concerns about today’s world fears, dilemmas and challenges.

Students are given a chance even to design their own educational system; their mission is to create their own personal learning environment in a form of PPT presentation/ 3D Model or a maquette.

Following well-designed grading criteria, not only does this approach prove that presentation skills are essential in defining one’s personality, but it also helps students cope with demanding challenges. Such projects focus on promoting interest and empowering Narmerians with opportunities to become successful innovators, difference makers and future leaders.

Numeracy Centres

Students work collaboratively in a fun generated setting to apply the knowledge they gained all week in their numeracy classes. The numeracy centres include activities and hands-on manipulatives by which students get to analyse and evaluate the learning outcomes and create original work with the guidance and the support of their teachers.

Thinking and working mathematically skills are practised and developed, along with communication and presentation skills. The process of thinking and working mathematically encourages learners to talk with peers, challenge ideas, and to provide evidence that validates conjectures and solutions. Moreover, students actively seek to make sense of ideas and build connections between different facts, procedures and concepts.

Active learning

Active learning approach is followed by all teachers in different subject areas. It engages students in their learning by thinking, discussing, investigating, exploring and creating in class. Students practice skills, solve problems, struggle with complex questions, make decisions, propose solutions and explain ideas in their own words through writing and discussion.

Active learning includes many benefits, among which is applying Knowledge that helps students encode information, concepts, and skills in their memories by connecting them with prior information, organizing knowledge, and strengthening neural pathways.

Working on activities helps create personal connections with the material, which increases students’ motivation to learn. Regular interaction and engagement with their peers, guided by their teachers, helps create a sense of community in the classroom, as well as accountability, character building and self-awareness. According to recent studies, 90% of knowledge and learning is retained by peer interaction.

Science Fair and Science projects

The annual Science fair is an opportunity for students to apply the scientific method to conduct independent research. The results of each student’s research is presented in a school wide science fair where the student’s efforts are displayed and where students are interviewed to determine scientific merit.

Preparation for a science fair begins with the selection of a topic which will lead to a problem that the student will wish to research. The student explores various sources of information in order to gain a thorough understanding of the topic that he or she has chosen.

“Thinking outside the Trash” is an example of a theme where Narmerians presented ideas using recycled or reused materials enhancing eco-friendly environment, and preserving energy being proactive citizens and serving their community.

Christmas Event

Christmas is a very important day for celebration and having good vibes.

Einstein Day

On the 14th of March, the International Pi Day, which happens to be Einstein’s birthday, the students celebrated the day by learning about Pi and how it is related to mathematics, engaged in fun activities presenting Pi with different methods.

They also studied Einstein’s life, presented facts about him and created a timeline for his life. They enjoyed enriching their knowledge with new and interesting facts on this worldwide celebrated day!
