Sycamore class were very interested in our visit to the mosque today. Our guide, Nadeem Khan, was very interesting and showed us many areas of the mosque. We visited two very large prayer rooms; Year 2 were amazed at their size. We also visited the room where Muslims complete Wudu before entering the mosque to pray. We were very lucky whilst inside the mosque because the call to prayer started so we were able to listen to this together.
Whilst visiting, we thought carefully about how Muslims create a sense of belonging. We learnt how Muslims always face the same way to prayer so even if a Muslim was praying alone, they would know that many other Muslims around the world would also be facing the same way!
Sycamore class were very well behaved throughout their visit; a true credit to St John’s!
