Years 5 and 6 visit the Mosque in Cambridge
On Wednesday 22nd November, Class 5 and 6 went to a mosque in Cambridge. To respect their religion, we had to take off our shoes and the female teachers had to wear headscarves to cover their heads. We learnt about their god, Allah, and about the five pillars. They are the rules that Muslims have to follow. We met the Iman who told us about his job and what they do at the mosque. Iman told us all about their traditional prayers that they must do 5 times a day. We had a tour of the mosque and we learnt about the early Islamic civilisation. At the end, they gave us a quiz, which we really enjoyed, as well as crisps and a drink.
We found the trip really interesting. We learnt a lot and would hope to go there again.
