Today year 5 visited Leeds Grand Mosque. In RE we have been learning about the religion of Islam and the trip to the mosque supported us with this learning. The teachers at the mosque were very impressed with the knowledge we already had, but they were able to teach us lots of interesting facts too!
Year 5 were shocked to hear how many similarities there are between Christianity, Judaism and Islam!
The children had the chance to ask lots of questions and even got to try on costumes worn by Muslims from around the world. Overall it was a brilliant day and we learnt lots of new things!
