Special Event - Year 5 Visit Our Local Mosque

14 November 2012

Children in Year 5 went on a trip to the local mosque. This was to support them with their topic work on Islam.

The children experienced the mosque and the Islamic religion first hand during their trip and were lucky enough to witness prayer, Salat, they performed Wudu and were even given the chance to hold the rod of the Imaam!

Our guide, Mullah Din, showed us around the Masjid and spoke to us about the Islamic religion not only in our local area, but all around the world!

The children asked lots of questions and found out a lot of information about Islam. They really enjoyed the trip and said it helped them understand the religion.
