Year 5 visit the Islamic Centre
24 February 2009
Every year, our school holds a Multifaith Week where each class studies a different religion. Year 5 had to learn all about Islam and were privileged to visit the Islamic Centre on the Coventry Road in Birmingham on February 24th.
It was a perfect opportunity for us all to improve our knowledge and understanding of the Islamic faith.
There were many interesting exhibits to look at and an activity room where the children were shown how to write their name in Arabic and were allowed to dress up in Muslim clothes. The presenters were very helpful and friendly.
In this section of the Centre, the class found out about the history of Islam.
