Computer Science Club

Lead: Hawra Milani

The demand for computer-literate graduates has continuously increased over the last decade, and will continue to do so in the upcoming years. It is estimated that within the  next 5 years, the UK will have a shortage of about 400,000 IT positions available. This provides a great opportunity for students to enter a field with strong work prospects and career advancements.

At Jaffaria Academy, we care for a well-rounded schooling, and want to ensure that students will benefit from an education in line with the latest developments in the field. We aim to establish a mindset that changes them from consumers to creators, and keep them on the forefront of the latest technology changes.

The computer science curriculum will be based on the UK National Curriculum along with industry-specific training by specialist IT professionals that will enhance both the academic and the practical applications of the subject. The students will be taught foundational computer science knowledge and skills including online safety, computational logic, algorithms, programming, and web design.

Both the topics and the teaching methods will be updated based on the latest research in the field of computing education, and each Key Stage will be taught the essential skills based on their ability and level.

 

Creative Writing Club

Lead: Zahra Milani

Great orators infiltrate our Islamic history. Starting from the prophets of the Almighty and following through with our beloved Imams, their holy mothers, sisters and children, we have numerous traditions that guide and encourage us to seek knowledge and transmit what we have learnt to others. What cannot be dismissed, is that all great orators also have the ability to write their thoughts down in a creative and persuasive manner.

Once a week, your child will attend the Creative Writing Club to ensure that they learn the methodology and science behind expressing their opinion and thoughts in a matter that suits their ability.

Their work will be marked and edited and they will then be encouraged to verbally share their writing with others in the club.

A competition will be held at the end of each term, where students will compete with one another in reading out their creative writing; be it in the shape of a poem, speech or narrative writing.
