This half term, in RE, the children are studying the Islamic religion.
- recognise some of the key teachings of Islam
- make links with the ways beliefs can affect decisions
- give reasons on how being a Muslim can effect a believer’s life.
Throughout these lessons, there will opportunities for some spiritual, moral and cultural development. The children will think about the ways Muslims show their commitment to God, and look for links to their own lives. We will investigate the pillars of Islam and the impact they have on the wider world. For some cultural development, we will explore where Muslims worship.
Hopefully, the children will get an opportunity to meet and engage with someone from the local Muslim community.
Today, the children looked closely at some Islamic artefacts. Pupils worked in groups to investigate the meaning and significance of their artefacts.
Ask your child about their artefact.
- What was it?
- What did it represent?
