Islamic Visitor for Yew& Aspen and Acacia & Pine

Today, The Grove School welcomed an Islamic Visitor who gave a talk about Islam to Yew and Aspen and Acacia and Pine.

Yew and Aspen were introduced to the concept of Islam with Pilgrimages as a focus. She spoke about the five pillars of Islam, teaching the children the Arabic words for each pillar. The children sat beautifully and were well engaged throughout. There was a Qu’ran ( not sure how to spell this?!), along with prayer beads and prayer mats for the children to look at. The children asked some interesting and probing questions, sparking some super discussion. They were also treated to tasty dates and a very special, personal gift: A copy of their own name, written in Arabic, on gold paper.

Acacia and Pine explored the Holy Book called the Ku'ron and viewed the meaning of some passages linked to forgiveness, bullying and anger. Our children discussed these important topics and explored how the Ku'ron advises Muslim to behave. Through practical tasks involving group work, water and paper everyone gained a deeper understanding of this Holy Book.
