Dr.Bike Visits Al-Noor -Wednesday 22nd June 2016

Thank You to Dr. Bike AKA Jim Dalton who visited us with his team and helped fix and rebuild bikes for some of our pupils who took the opportunity to get a free health check!

If you didn’t get a chance to bring your bike this time round please do visit your local bike store! We have The Cycle Store right next to the school – who will also check the bike for a small cost. We urge you to  get your bikes checked for safety. Bike use in the summer increases with the improved weather and it is important to ensure that your bikes are in safe working order.

Enter The Warriors World

ENTER THE WARRIORS WORLD!


Have you ever thought about life in the forest, eating mice and voles? How about fighting with tooth and claw, with echoing  battle cries? Well, there are a group of cats who have decided to live this life. These are the WARRIORS.

This is a series of books based on fiction and adventure with a twist of fantasy.

The Warrior Code


Every cat of each clan has to follow the Warrior Code. Here is a touch of it:

  1. The clan must be fed first.
  2. Crossing clan boundaries is not permitted unless on a journey the the Moon Stone or to Gatherings.
  3. There is a truce every full moon for a Gathering.
  4. It is compulsory to have the clan leaders name ending with ‘star’ when he/she is granted with nine lives from their Warrior Ancestors.

CATS OF THE CLAN:

WHAT HAPPENS IN THE FIRST BOOK


Series 1, Book 1: Into the wild

For generations, four Clans of wild cats have shared the forest according to the laws laid down by their warrior ancestors. But the ThunderClan cats are in grave danger, and the sinister ShadowClan grows stronger every day. Noble warriors are dying – and some deaths are more mysterious than others.
In the midst of this turmoil appears an ordinary house cat named Rusty… who may turn out to be the bravest warrior of them all….

I thought it was a boring series of cats, well as soon as I opened the first page, I was stuck to it like glue!

SNEAK PEAK FROM S1 BOOK 2


Deep in the heart of the forest, four clans of warrior cats coexist in uneasy harmony—but uncertain times are upon them, and dangers threaten the precarious balance of the forest.

Fireheart is a ThunderClan warrior cat now, but his troubles are far from over. As the chill of winter sets in, the cats of rival RiverClan grow restless, while WindClan is weak and facing threats from all sides.

As tensions build to an explosive climax, Fireheart faces not only imminent battle, but betrayal from within his own Clan.

We have been to the Royal Veterinary College (RVC) and learnt a lot about animal anatomy.  We were split into 2 groups.  While one group was busy identifying and naming different animal bones, the other group had the chance to handle live animals (Daisy the cow and  the pony).

The Vet students were very welcoming.

Disability Assembly – Guest visit from Maryam Simjee

Al-Noor were fortunate enough to have a visit from a dear friend of the school, Sister Maryam Simjee.

Maryam met with all the pupils in the school and delivered an assembly to the pupils explaining what disability is, how she has learnt to be independent with her own disability, the trials and daily challenges she faces. Maryam was an inspiration to the pupils and school, showing a huge capacity for patience and perseverance in the face of adversity, calmness and contentment. Maryam discussed how she achieved many goals, such as gaining her degree and how her faith has helped her in that.

The pupils had the opportunity to ask her a number of questions about her daily life and routines.

Thank you and JazakiAllahukhairan for your valuable visit Sister Maryam!
