Reception Class visit Rhodes Street Mosque

The reception children went to visit Rhodes Street Mosque today. We had a tour of the mosque and the man told us all about the features. He told us that Muslims pray five times a day facing towards the Kaa'ba which is Mecca in Saudi Arabia. There were lots of Qur'ans in the mosque - he told us that this was the special holy book that Muslims read. He took us upstairs to show where children have Arabic lessons.

The children were very interested in the mimbar which is a special place at the front of the Mosque where the Imam delivers his speech. The visit was very informative and the children's behaviour was outstanding.
