Level 1-Islamic Studies for 04th, 11th, & 18th March 2018
Assalamu Alikum Wr Wbr,
Alahamdulillah, the children are becoming more comfortable and settling in well as they have begun to understand how the routine of the Sunday school operates and are more familiar with their new surrounding and faces within the CIS at the Yarralumala masjid.
They are also making new friendships among their groups and also developing some trusting relationships with their teachers including myself and Sr Zainub.
Over the last couple of weeks we have been extending on the children’s learning on becoming familiar with everyday Arabic phrases, through nasheeds, games, interactive discussions and watching videos on this topic. This I find has helped the children identify the various occasions when these Arabic phrases are being used in their everyday activities and have displayed a good understanding of remembering their creator and thanking Him for everything in their everyday life. JazzakhAllah Khair for your support in practicing these with them at home and having them complete their homework too. This is evident in the children who are putting, what they learn here at CIS, into practice at home too, as they confidently partake in the discussions which include revision questions too.
Last week, the children were introduced to the six articles of faith. The lesson was supposed to include a video however due to some issues with my PC was unable to watch it in class. With Allah’s help the class continued as an interactive discussion on the day, Alhamdulillah. The link to this video has been emailed to you, which you can allow your child to watch at home and then discuss with them of what they learnt at school.
You will also find a homework colouring sheet in the folder, which the children can colour in and also learn the six articles of faith found in each petal of the flower, MashaAllah.
INSHAALLAH, I LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ALL AT THE PARENT TEACHER INTERVIEWS TO BE HELD ON SUNDAY 25/03, WHICH REPLACES THE USUAL CLASSES ON THE DAY. YOU CAN BOOK A TIME SLOT ONLINE (EMAIL SENT OUT WITH LINK TO ONLINE BOOKINGS).
