This week at the garden club the children planted some strawberry plants and learned some interesting facts about strawberries and their health benefits! They finished off the session with a quiz about everything they had learned.
The children also checked up on their other previous projects, pulled out some weeds and found that some of their flowers were blooming beautifully!
The garden club is now closed for the half term. We look forward to seeing you back on Friday 11th June 2021 Insha’Allah.
Our students aged 9-10 have been pin loom crafting this half-term; a loom is a device used to weave cloth and tapestry. The basic purpose of any loom is to hold the warp threads under tension to facilitate the interweaving of the weft threads. Pin weaving offers both versatility and portability for a woven project. The warp threads are held in place with straight pins. Weaving can be done in any direction, using thread, yarn, fabric strips, beads, feathers or other fibres. Crafting helps build self-esteem and gain confidence by:
- Building new skills
- Feeling productive
- Providing a useful way to give to others
- Creating beauty through self-expression
Cultural Heritage is the attributes, customs and traditions which are passed down between generations. It is an expression of self, as well as of community and family.
People of the same culture often have a shared identity, which can give a sense of pride, comfort, and belonging to members of the cultural ethnicity or group.
Our students at the Tuition club have been encouraged to think about the importance of cultural heritage.
We have found that this group activity is an amazing way of creating positive peer relationships and friendships. As each child takes a turn to discuss their cultural heritage, you can encourage to ask respectful questions and expand their understanding of other cultures. Group discussions like these can also be helpful in building confidence and valuable public speaking skills in children.
The garden club will resume onsite on Friday 21st May Insha Allah

Over the past few weeks, the children have been getting adventurous in the garden; they have planted a herb garden, planted sunflower seeds and decorated plant pots!
The children planted various herbs including mint, rosemary, chives, coriander, and sage and learned about how they can be used in the kitchen to add flavour and make foods even more delicious.
This week, the children got creative with paint, glitter, yarn and ribbon and designed their own plant pots to be planted in one of the coming weeks InshaAllah.
We look forward to seeing you after the break InshaAllah.
The Tuition Club has now closed for the last 10 days of Ramadhan and Eid.
During this week, Our home-schooled children have been super busy and creative! They have been making paper lanterns in all shapes and colours! Our children ages 5 onwards were also outdoors this week on a scavenger hunt and were ticking off all the things that they could find on their list! We have found that our home schooled children particularly loved this activity; Play is essential to the healthy development of children; it helps them discover and explore, solve problems, test new ideas and experience friendship, cooperation and teamwork. children 11-13 were also keeping busy with learning how to crochet! As well as being a mood lifter, crocheting has proven health benefits as the small repetitive movements involved can keep your hands, arms and fingers supple and your eyes sharp.
We would like to wish everyone the very best for the rest of this blessed month, and we hope that you all benefit from the break!
