Work shop for primary school teachers and secondary school teachers of RE, Art and Maths

Monday 11 January 2016,11:30 – 3:30

£60 - Price will include lunch and a resource pack.

Razwan Ul-Haq will be working with Heathfield Community School in running a workshop looking at Islamic Art and Culture in RE, Art and Maths. Razwan is an ex-headteacher, an LA advisor and a celebrated Islamic artist and author.

What is the aim of the day?

To offer teachers ideas, resources and a creative approach to teaching Islam. Pupils are exposed to an ever increasing depiction of a polarised world from the media. Islamic art can be a non-evasive way of introducing positive reflections of Muslim culture in schools. The aim will be to develop a deeper understanding of Islam and to look at creative avenues for exploring key principles.

What will you take away from the day?
The workshop will be balance of practical activities and theory. You will try some Islamic art, look at poetry, and discuss meditation and relaxation. You will take away a resource pack with examples of work and activities for Art, RE and Maths.

If you are interested please contact Jade McVeigh on
