Yr 4 RE

15th November 2018
Year 4 have been learning all about Islam for R.E. this term, and this week we were privileged to have Malak’s mum come and talk to us about what it means to be a Muslim. We learned about the 5 pillars of Islam, we learned that Mecca, in Saudi Arabia, is the holy city that Muslims make pilgrimages to and that as a Muslim it is proper to pray facing Mecca, we even looked on the map to find where Mecca is in relation to the UK and then investigated with a compass which direction we would need to face if we were praying from our classrooms. We all had many questions to ask Malak’s mum at the end and we are excited to continue with our exploration of Islam.
