On the 23rd of January, Year 5 were fortunate enough to extend their learning outside of the classroom as they visited the London Central Mosque.
Their focus has been on the five pillars of Islam, with Ms Bourne in RE. The boys were confident in applying their prior learning and they asked brilliant questions. Do you know what the five pillars are? If not, please ask someone in Year 5 as they would love to share their understanding!
Because we partook in a tour of the Mosque, we were lucky enough to see one of the daily prayers, including the call to prayer. Did you know Muslims (those who follow Islam) pray five times a day? The boys watched the second prayer which takes place at midday, after the sun passes its highest point.
All in all, the Year 5 boys had a fantastic day! They thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Islamic Centre and London Central Mosque. Miss Osborn and Ms Marinkovic were very proud of the respect they displayed during their visit.
