Visit to Heaton Mosque

Lower Key Stage 2 have been learning about Islam. We visited Heaton Road Mosque to support our work in school. Usman met us at the door. First we took off our shoes and then we were taken into one of the prayer halls. We found out that Muslims pray 5 times a day and there are clocks in the mosque showing these times. We watched some of the congregation saying prayers led by the Imam. After prayers, we visited the washrooms.

We really enjoyed our visit and found out lots of new and interesting things about Islam. It was a great experience to learn about and show respect towards others in our community.

A big thank you to the parents who came with us.
