DDD4- Inspire Us Please!


Mr Ahmed came to our DDD4 to talk to us about his career, being a scientist. We were also stationed in the Al-Noor Foundation, The Board Room.


The challenge was to make tablets of the same lengths and depths being 1 cm in diameter and 0.5 in depth.



Mrs Sadia came during the second part of the session to tell us about her career. She actually had two careers; a Chartered Accountant and a Baker.


She set us an activity; decorating cupcakes. This is one of the girls groups.


The boys decorated this set.

We had World Book Day on the 9th of March. We had a wonderful time especially after the teachers gave a wonderful performance based on the story Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

After that the teachers announced the winners. And from our class the winners were Fatima I and Kayan. They had made their own costumes, Fatima sewed some hearts on her beautiful black and red dress;she dressed up as Queen of hearts.  On the other hand, Kayan had made a Lego costume which was the most creative costume Al-Noor have ever set eyes on.

Drop Down Day 2 at Thriftwood- Year 6

I liked the activities and when everyone was working together. (Zainab U.)


I liked stepping in the mud and running in the leaves. (Ayesha)


I learnt to work as a team. (Umair)


We had an amazing reminder on the theme of RESPECT by Abu Yusuf (our Islamic Studies teacher).


I learned that when working together we can achieve better as a group and that sometimes you need help, even if you think you can do it all by yourself. (Khayriyyah)


I learned not to wear slippery shoes near muddy puddles. I also learned to be a better contributor. (Usman)


I learned how to be more contributive by sharing ideas and not just stand on the side and take all the credits for it. (Sufyan)


I learned to contribute ideas and to communicate effectively with my team members. (Fatima I).

Year 6 – has a fun time harvesting carrots!


Today a group of children from our class went downstairs to pull out some carrots from the Year 6 allotment plot. After pulling them out, we went to the staffroom and washed them clean. We had an amazing time!!!


Some carrots (like this one) were sweet however, unluckily others were bitter. Maybe…. they weren`t ready for harvest.


Here is one absolutely clean and sparkling carrot!!!!


Our allotment plot after our harvest is now…. a carrotic disaster!!!
