This term in Year 2, we have been learning about Islam. We have focused on celebrations within the religion and Muslim marriages. The children enjoyed making links between their previous RE topic of Christianity, where we also looked at marriages.
On Tuesday, we visited Newcastle Central Mosque to have a first hand experience of this place of worship. The children found out about the five pillars of Islam and how these are used to teach a Muslim to live their lives. The children really impressed all of the adults with how much they had learnt in class and recalled during the trip. The children were given the opportunity to ask questions while we were there, and this showed how inquisitive the children of Year 2 are.
