This half term we're going to be looking at the religion of Islam and the sawm, which means fasting during the month of Ramadan on the Islamic calendar. 


Ramadan for Muslims this year started yesterday evening. One of the key ideas behind it, and Islam as a whole, is the word commitment. To explore this idea, we're going to have a bit of a brainstorming session - all I need is you to jot your ideas down and we'll see how they develop over the coming weeks, and how they relate to our topic of Islam.


Firstly what do you think we mean by the word commitment, or to commit to something? Can you think of any examples you've heard of people committing to a cause, a community, a skill, or another person?

To help you, one big commitment is the one we're all making at the moment - our commitment to stay home and stay safe.


Secondly, let's have a think about the point of commitment. Is there anything in your life you would like to be better at, at school or at home? What could you do to make yourself better at it? How much time do you think you would need to commit to getting better before you noticed an improvement? What kind of qualities might a person who shows commitment develop?


Lastly, and probably an easier one to finish off - what kind of things could stop you from being committed? What kind of things would you want to avoid?


Good luck - and remember I'm not looking for pages upon pages - just a mind map with your thoughts - here's an example of one about Christianity, if you need an example. 

Just don't misspell angels as angles.
