Hadith of the Week
Anas ibn Malik reported: The Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “None of you have faith until I am more beloved to him than his children, his father, and all of the people.”
Be Well Hub
Iqra held its first Be Well Hub session on Friday. A Be Well Hub is a community space in which people come together along with Be Well champions to provide a place where people can talk and share any problems. Iqra aims to be a place which can serve as a welcome space in which parents can form good relationships with one another and be signposted to any help that they may need. There will be further sessions in the future.
Year 5 Assembly
Year 5 gave a wonderful assembly last week on the signs before the birth of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him. They presented a role play on some of the events that took place like the Temple fire of the Persians going out and the balconies of the Persian Emperor collapsing. They also gave a wonderful rendition of a nasheed on the Prophet ﷺ.
Year 2 Assembly
Year 2 performed a fantastic assembly on Road Safety. They highlighted that we must always stop, look and listen before crossing the road. We learnt that there are special crossings that help us cross the roads safely including zebra crossings, pelican crossings and footbridges!
Anti Bullying Week
For Anti Bullying week, children in Years 1-6 had a special workshop in the hall. Open view theatre came and children were taught to think about what bullying is and how to help yourself or others who are being bullied.
Value of the Term
This term, children are learning about the special rank of the Prophet Muhammad, blessings and peace of Allah upon him. The children will learn about what the Prophet looked like, his rank on the Day of Judgement, some of the special names of the Prophet and other aspects of his life.
What your children learn
One of the key lessons that your child receives every week is vocabulary. Research shows that the more words that children know, the better their success is at GCSE level. Years 1-2 have a word of the week and Years 3-6 have 5-10 words that they learn the meanings to. Ask your children what the words of the week are or what vocabulary they have been learning in their Guided Reading sessions.
