St Nicholas Church of EnglandPrimary Academy


Welcome toSt Nicholas Church of England Primary Academy


This term we are learning about the Islamic religion. We will be thinking about these two important questions ... 

What does the Qur’an say about how Muslims should treat others and live their lives?
How can Muslim faith and beliefs be seen in the actions of inspirational Muslims?

We will be learning about Imam (faith) and the shahadah (statement of faith) – ‘there is no God but God, and Muhammad is his prophet’.

We will also be looking at some of the five pillars of Islam. One of the Five Pillars of Islam is as a key part of Muslim prayer.
We will be thinking about Akhlaq (character, moral conduct) – making good choices, choices that will keep creation in harmony, as Muslims believe God intended.
We will be discussing zakat which is the importance of serving others and showing compassion – helping address disharmony in the world, that is, some have more than they need, others don’t have enough.
We will also listen to a variety of stories about the prophets  – and how to care for others and make sure the world is a fair, just and harmonious place.
