11 year old Sara is a Muslim from London. She uses a personal camera to introduce us to her life, family and Muslim faith: she loves her guinea pig, her ambition is to be a fashion designer, and her religion is Islam. She is fasting, going without food, at the moment, because it is the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. At her age she wants to get ready to fast for the whole month in the future.
While watching this clip pupils could note six facts about Sara in a bubble diagram, with a picture of Sara in the middle. Afterwards they could create another bubble diagram for themselves: ‘Six things about me.’ The two diagrams can be saved and added to during the unit of work as a fuller picture of Islam builds up.
