The objectives of teaching English in the Primary Cycle are intended to familiarize the
pupils with the language (orally and in writing) in a stress - free and fun-loaded atmosphere
to prepare them for more demanding tasks in the subsequent stages.

Below is the general statement of the performance objectives of teaching English as a
foreign language in grades one, two, three, four, five and six in the Primary Cycle in terms of
language skills for convenience.

The aims in the early grades are:
 To assure that learning English is easy while developing a

child's enthusiasm for, and the desire to learn a new
language.

 To develop positive learning habits such as turn taking,
organizational skills and cooperative learning.

 To enlarge children's horizons so that they become familiar
with different cultures while developing an understanding of
their own.

 To experience language awareness in terms of how English
works and differs from Arabic.

 To enable children to communicate simply but effectively
through the development of oral proficiency in English.

 To lay solid foundations for the development of literacy
skills in English.

The two readers in Hand in Hand Year Three will add to the
pupils' vocabulary and develop the children's enthusiasm as
well as their reading skills.
