Islam awareness for primary school students

Islamic Awareness
Introduction

The aim is to briefly introduce Islam and its main concept.  We explain the life of Muslims, particularly in Lincolnshire. The services are designed to help and support school students, particularly those who are studying Islam in their RS/RE. The sessions are supported by various types of materials, illustrations and artefacts, as well as hands-on activities to engage students. This training can be used as evidence towards helping you achieve SMSC.
