IS1: Prophet Yunus AS

As Salaam alaykum! 👋🏽 Alhamdulillah, our Islamic Studies year 1 class are having a fabulous term 2 learning about prophets! During our lesson on prophet Yunus AS, the class discussed how he would have felt in the belly of the whale, and the immense power of dua! SubhanAllah! To embed our learning, we discussed the dua of prophet Yunus AS and how we can use it in our lives, and got creative with a fabulous arts and crafts activity to remind us of the dua 👌🏽 Alhamdulillah, wonderful work and participation by the class – such a blessing to hear our youngest year show such excitement and understanding when learning about our beloved prophets, MashaAllah! Well done IS1! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

AS1 Lesson 18th Feb

Assalaamu Alaikum! In Arabic Studies Class 1 last Sunday, students were learning about the attributes of Allah, Rabb and As-Samad, from surah Al-Fatiha, Al-Ikhlaas, Al-Falaq and An-Naas.

Students were provided with biodegradable pots filled with compost which they took turns in squirting with water to moisten the soil in preparation for planting. They pressed some sunflower seeds and peas into the soil, hiding the seeds and placed them in their waterproof pots, ready for their window sills at home.

We also connected this activity with the beautiful event of the meeting of prophets Muhammad and Ibraheem ﷺ on the night of Isra wa Al-Miraj, the news of the soil of Jannah and how the seeds of plants are our remembers of Allah on earth.

Students learnt about the role of parents as murabbi and now they were the murabbies of their potted seeds.

IS1: Hajj

As Salaam alaykum! One of my favourite lessons for IS1 is bringing together the stories of prophet Ibrahim AS and Hajj! Alhamdulillah! This lesson is always so exciting for the class (including me and our amazing teaching assistants!) where we create a mini hajj model! Throughout the lesson we discuss the steps of Hajj, discussing and linking this with prophet Ibrahim AS as we build our models. SubhanAllah – I love seeing the excitement and enthusiasm in our amazing students, and how proud they are to take their models home and talk about them with their families! 🙏🏽 Alhamdulillah! At MKIS we strive to make learning interactive, engaging and fun – and this lesson always reminds me that it’s such a blessing to have the opportunity to teach and support here. Amazing work IS1!! 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽
