Islamic inventions fair
We are an Independent Islamic Primary school with two branches; in Slough and London, called "The Islamic Shakhsiyah Foundation". In addition to teaching through cross-curricular themes for holistic learning, the school also works to highlight the great achievements and developments made by Muslims from our golden heritage, and give ambition to the children to become such pioneers themselves. Over the years, we have held very successful Islamic Inventions Fairs where children have researched and made models of Islamic Inventions, discoveries and scientific advancements. These were then presented to the parents and the community. The students choose an invention/discovery and expand their projects by conducting research, making models and displays, explaining what they have learnt, how it works etc. Topics include 'Astronomy and the Universe', 'Architecture and the Arts', 'Medicine and the Natural World' and 'Travelling, Exploring and Centres of Learning'. In 2011, we won an Award for Innovation and Creativity for this. This will be a good opportunity for everyone to see at first hand what the children have learned from our golden heritage, hopefully inspiring them to become such leaders in the fields of excellence in the future.
