We would like to say a huge jazakAllahu khair to the wonderful parents of our Year 2 children who kindly provided all staff and year 2 a really delightful lunch to celebrate our recent successful Ofsted inspection. Everyone at the school would like to convey our gratitude, jazakAllahu khair!
Al-Noor will be taking part in the Redbridge Walk to School initiative this week.
Calling all ‘park and striders’! Walk from a bit further this next week by leaving 5 minutes earlier! Those who normally travel by school bus should continue as normal on the schoolbus! Don your warm woolies and coats, wellies or boots (but make sure you have you school shoes with you) and enjoy the scenery and fresh air as you walk to school!
There will be a warm surprise for pupils who walk to school on Friday 25th November 2016 insha’Allah!
We will also be running a Walk to School banner Competition.
This competition is to encourage more pupils to walk to school on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. You can ask your children to think about why it is good to walk to school and come up with a strong message/ slogan about health and eco benefits. School pupils have won in the past masha’Allah! The template is attached to your Jumuah Notice Bulletin. The deadline is 5th December 2016. Please hand your entries in to Umm ‘Isa!
Al-Noor had the opportunity to welcome a guest from the Redbridge Faith Forum on Friday 18th November 2016, Mr. Phil Butcher who came to speak to us about the Christian faith and share similarities and differences between Chritianity and Islam. The pupils and Mr. Butcher alike shared their commitment to respecting faiths in our diverse community and working for the common good.
Al-Noor Primary had the opportunity to welcome and open the doors for our new (though temporary) school building to our honoured guests on Tuesday and Wednesday 15 and 16th November 2016. Our guests kindly joined us for assembly – which also coincided with Interfaith Week.
We would like to thank all the guests for visiting and hope you enjoyed your visit to our school. We would also like to thank the Mayor of Redbridge for his kind and inspirational words as well as the Councillors Jas Athwal, Elaine Norman and Alan Weinberg for the motivating advice to our pupils!
Al-Noor took part in the London Borough of Redbridge ‘Be Bright Be Seen’ Campaign – linked to our school travel plan initiatives.
As the day has become short and a number of pupils travel to school and home in the dark we took part in this day to bring awareness about the importance of being bright and being seen by other road users.
We had an assembly on to share with our pupils why it is important to be seen, particularly by car drivers to avoid accidents involving pedestrians.
A number of our pupils took part and wore something especially bright and dazzled us with their enthusiasm and participation. We continue to encourage neon bands, hats, gloves, jackets and bags to be worn whilst travelling outside of Day Glow Day just to keep safe.
We were so pleased to welcome MP Mr. Mike Gapes to our new school site to deliver a really wonderful assembly about his job and how he got there. It was very motivating to hear him encourage all our pupils about not giving up and trying hard to be successful in something.
A number of our pupils were nominated, and campaigned, to be voted by class members as school council representatives. Mr. Gapes helped us to welcome them to form the new school council team with special school council badges.
Well done to all of you and a special thanks to our guest! We hope you visit again soon!
The whole school is buzzing with excitement as pupils nominate themselves and others to be voted as representatives in our school council election on the 6th October 2016.
A number of committed pupils have designed posters and even badges to get into the spirit of campaigning. They have focused on considering the qualities of a good leader who speaks as one voice for all pupils.
Polling Day arrived on 6th of October when all KS2 classes went off to the Polling Station (our main hall) to cast their ballots.
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.
Our girls football team travelled to Islamia Primary School to take part in the annual under 12s football tournament for girls on the 24th May 2016. Al-Noor took part against Apex Primary School, Ayesha Community School, Al-Deen Primary School and Islamia Primary School. After a number of matches in the two group settings the remaining teams were pit against each other in the semi-final, with Al-Noor girls coming in third place. Ayesha Community and Apex Primary played against each other in the final with Ayesha Community finishing victorious as the champions. A wonderful and eventful day, where all teams played superbly well, high level of teamwork and friendly competition.
Well done to our Al-Noor Girls, Tahani, Hafsah, Rahhma, Ameena, Khadeejah P, Sumayyah R and Laisa – Congratulations!
