Yr.6 “Elocution Competition”
May I thank all the parents who attended the Year Six assembly on Wednesday the 16th January 2013. Your presence definitely boosts their confidence. I was confident that
they would take you by surprise. And indeed, they did by
performing poetry of their choice with expression showing
their skills and talents.
Their performance was marked by judges and Alhamdulillah certificates were given to
the top four performers for their Voice, Memory, Acting and Elocution. It was a tough
competition so we had to choose four best performers Masha’Allah.

Yr.5 “A Reminder for Believers“
The children of Year 5, seen here after their outstanding presentation at Assembly on Wednesday 30 January, reminded us all of our duty to our Lord, Allah ‫سبحانه وتعاىل‬.
The presentation with the theme, ‘A Reminder for Believers’ served the purpose of reminding us
that we must adhere to Allah’s commands. It was also a reminder of our duty to follow the wonderful examples we have in our beloved Prophet Muhammad ‫صلى اهلل عليه وسلم‬, through his actions
and sayings. With beautiful recitations and clear translations, the children’s presentation modelled the link between the Qur’anic injunctions and the teachings of the Prophet ‫صلى اهلل عليه وسلم‬.
The basis of the presentation was a narration of the Prophet ‫صلى اهلل عليه وسلم‬reported on the
authority of Abu Hurayrah ‫ رضي اهلل عنه‬that the Messenger of Allah ‫ صلى اهلل عليه وسلم‬said: ‘Beware of suspicion, for suspicion is the greatest
lie. Do not be inquisitive about one another, nor spy on one another. Do not outbid one another in order to raise the price. Do
not be envious and do not hold grudges. Do not backbite, but be slaves of Allah and (be like) brothers. (Narrated by Bukhari and
Muslim). In establishing the link between this hadith and what we were warned by Allah, related ayahs were recited. There are, of
course, several ayahs in which warnings of these vices are expounded. However, you can
remind yourself of what Allah ‫ سبحانه وتعاىل‬says in connection with this hadith by reading or
reciting the ayahs the class did during the Assembly: 49:12; 3:102, 104; 5:101-102; 83:1-6;
77:16-19; 55:41; 4:142-144; 58:14-16; 2:10 and 2:204-208.

Reception “Fire Station Visit”
"Reception class had a great time visiting
the fire station on Tuesday 4th February
2013, they all learnt so much and absolutely enjoyed going in the fire engine and
experiencing the water hose. A big thank
you to all the parents who came with us;
your help was much appreciated."
"Finally, we would like to welcome Nermin Malin to reception class as
she started her journey this term."
"Everyone in reception class brought in something for 'show and tell'. They all enjoyed sharing
their toys and their thoughts, it was a great activity for the whole class, well done everyone."
Yr.1 & Syria Appeal
Year 1 made a wonderful
poster for the Syrian Appeal to
help Al Muntada campaign
for 2013 to collect £600,000
in aid of the Syrian refugees. A
convoy will be leaving on the
1st March 2013 to Zaatari
refugee camp on the SyrianJordanian boarders. We urge
all parents to help our organisation reach their target for
this appeal.
