In order to reward the achievements of our students, we will be having an online end of term ceremony. This is for all year groups including young learners. The ceremony will be via Skype (your child will be added in automatically) In shaa Allah.

Students who achieve a 100% mark for their effort and behaviour will be sent out certificates as well as prizes for those students that have reached one of the milestones.

We would like to congratulate all students for their hard work this term whilst learning online and would like to thank all parents for their continued support. We hope you all have a lovely break, and we look forward to our students returning in September in shaa Allah.

The Battle Of Uhud – An exciting way to End the Half- Term!

Throughout the Half-term our 6-7 Class have been learning about the importance of the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alayhi Wa’Sallam’s life, the Migration and the Battles which took place after the Migration.  Today, the final lesson of the half-term concluded with the Battle of Uhud. The students learnt that the battle occurred in the 3rd Year after Hijrah, and just one year after the Battle of Badr. During this battle, the Prophet and his Companions were betrayed by the hypocrites – people who pretended to believe in Islaam. 300 of them abandoned the Prophet, and left the Prophet with only 700 Muslims against 3000 non-Muslims.

One of the most important lessons the students learnt from the Battle of Uhud was the importance of obeying Allah and His Messenger (Sallalahu Alayhi Wa’Sallam). The Prophet told a group of archers not to leave their positions no matter what happened on the battlefield. These Muslims disobeyed the Messenger, and left their positions. As a result of their disobedience, 70 Muslims lost their lives, and the Prophet was seriously injured. From this we learn that we must follow the Prophet and his Sunnah in order to be successful, and that disobeying the Sunnah is disobeying the Prophet and brings bad consequences for both this life and the next.

The students used a map of Uhud and role play to understand the battle, and role-play to understand the effects of the disobedience of the archers. It was an insightful and educational activity, enjoyed by the class!

We hope our students enjoy their Half-Term Break. We look forward to their return on the 29th of February 2020 insha’Allah where they will be learning about the Conquest of Makkah!

Saturday School Assessment Day!

This Saturday 14th Decembert, will be the Assessment day for all upper years classes In Sha’Allah. The assessments will be from 11:00am to 2:30 pm. It is essential that students arrive on time  Please note that the school will close at 2:30 pm tomorrow. These assessments do not affect your child’s progression, but are simply an opportunity to assess whether key concepts have been understood.

Saturday School Revision Week!

This Saturday our teachers will be committing to help all upper years to revise and recap over their lessons covered this term. As we know, to commit something to memory takes time. Please support your child by helping to spread out their revision sessions on a particular topic (eg one-hour sessions over 7 days) is more effective than spending the same amount of time in one go (ie 7 hours in one day). This effect, known as “spacing”, helps because it allows time in between revision sessions to forget and re-learn the material.  Please ensure your child attends and brings in all of their class books to school. Please note; there will be no assessments for the our young learners.
