Ibn Masood

Incredible Ibn Masood

A warm welcome to Ibn Masood. Thank you for visiting our page. We are approaching the final term which has flown by!


Throughout this term, we have focused heavily on debating and writing arguments. We argued in favour and against several topics such as fracking and CCTV cameras. But the most hotly debated topic was definitely whether detention should be used in primary schools – as you can imagine, we had a very biased view with this debate! We have ended the term by focusing on fantasy stories and this has allowed our imaginations to run wild and to places we can only dream of!


In maths this term, we have looked at multiplying and dividing decimals by ten, hundred and thousand. We now know the rule for multiplying by multiples of ten and the CPA approach really helped us grasp this. The word problems have been extremely challenging but we are doing our best to tackle them and have been doing so successfully.

Mini Bac

We would firstly like to thank all the parents and everyone who helped with the mini bac. Not only was this a fantastic event where we were able to showcase our acting and performing skills but we also learnt about the importance of our STAR values. We showed these values and attributes throughout the whole process and we plan on implementing them in every aspect of our lives!

Hadeeth from Ibn Masood

Abdullah Ibn Masood reported that the Prophet (S.A.W) said, “Do not wish to be like anyone except in two cases. (The first is) A person, whom Allah has given wealth and he spends it righteously; (the second is) the one whom Allah has given wisdom (the Holy Qur’an) and he acts according to it and teaches it to others.” (Fateh-al-Bari page 177 Vol. 1)
