In Action

Quran lessons are an important part of the school timetable for Year 1 through to Year 11. Pupils in both the primary and secondary school are taught to use the rules of tajweed in their reading, recitation and memorisation. Secondary school pupils go on to study Quran translation, Tafseer as well as Uloom ul-Quran. An annual Quran competition also takes place in school encouraging pupils to excel in their recitation.

At Normanton House School we aim to deliver our comprehensive Islamic Studies curriculum in an informative yet fun and interactive way. Engaging the pupils and developing a love of Islam, as well as a thorough understanding of its concepts.

Each class will also present an assembly over the course of the year to their peers and parents, themed around what they have been learning in class.

Every Friday afternoon, Years 3 to 6 attend the school Jummah prayer in the hall with their teachers. The Khutbah is delivered in a child friendly manner by either one of our teachers or one of the Year 6 pupils who are also encouraged to take turns in preparing the Khutbah.

Ramadan is always a special time at Normanton House School. Classrooms are decorated, there are spiritual reminders each day and Ramadan themed daily activities. There is also an annual School iftar which the Secondary school pupils enjoy immensely.

Congregational prayer takes place daily at Dhuhr time (and Asr during the winter months) for all primary and secondary pupils. All Key Stage 2 attend the prayer. Year 5 and 6 boys are encouraged to take turns making the call to prayer and at times, leading the prayer also. Afternoon lessons are timetabled in order to accommodate for prayer times.
