Year 2 visit to Thornbury Mosque…

Today Year 2 visited Thornbury Mosque. We learnt about the different parts of the Mosque including the tall towers called minarets, the crescent moons and the speakers outside. The children also went inside the Mosque to look around. We learnt how to do Wuhdu and why this is important to Muslims. We then went to the main prayer room where Mrs Fatima showed us how Muslims pray. She showed us where the Imam sits during pray time-this is called the minbar. She talked to us about Haaj and some of our children even read from the Qu’uran! We also found out that all Muslims pray in the direction of Mecca.
