The 'half term'!

Assalamu alaykum,

the half term is almost over and to be honest for the first time I was happy to be out and about with my boys.

We had a surprise visit from my sister and the kids were so happy to spend some time with her. With my great pleasure, the kids have improved their italian and now can understand much more and reply little in italian.

The past week has been a busy one but very, very pleasant!!

So here it goes the non-so-usual 'unusual list' :) :

-Monday to Friday: A. has been at one of the many free courses organized by my borough. This half term he chose 'African Art'. A great way to learn about Africa!

-Tuesday: Kids attended a workshop at the Chadwell Heath Police Station. They learnt about the work of the police, safety and much more. They even got to hold real handcuffs and sat on a police car!

-Friday: we visited the local farm and mash'Allah the sun was out and all the farm animals were about. S. really like the farm. We bought some fresh eggs and honey freshly produced. My sister decided to make some tiramisu'! I am so looking forward to eat it after years!!

Qur'an and Arabic has been on as usual. Kids are still revising the Juzz 'Amma. The tutor was surpised to see my little 5 years old reading all the 30th part of the Qur'an. Mash'Allah. They are now working through more tajweed rules. Hamdulillah.

I started a small tafsir class with my boys. Every evening we read one small surah and then read the tafsir together. We are using a small collection of booklets from Ad-Duha institute .

I need to keep my post short and sweet as I am busy with studying...I can only pause a bit for some tiramisu' and a freshly made cup of cappuccino! :P

Happy home education to all!!

wa alaykum assalam
