1 Wiltshire RE Starter Stimulus Starter ideas for the following key question from the 2011 Agreed Syllabus: KS1.3 Why is God important for Muslims? This resource aims to provide some stimulus texts and ideas to help children begin to address the above question. It links to the following learning outcomes from p36 of the syllabus: Pupils can: Identify some ways a Muslims might describe God Choose some of the 99 names of Allah and say what they symbolise about God Respond sensitively to what matters to Muslims and what matters to them Many of the slides have notes to give suggestions for use. Look at the slide show in Normal mode and look for the notes at the bottom of the page. © Wiltshire Council

They could copy the Arabic script or try some decorative versions of the English. Those who are able might write a sentence to explain their artwork. 2.Meeting needs The language on slides 6-13 is difficult. You might instead choose 8 names and ask children when a person might be pleased to have someone around who is patient / gentle / forgiving / creator / guide / all- knowing etc. If Muslims believe that God is all of these things to them, ask the children to talk about why God is important to Muslims.
