As part of the school’s curriculum, this week’s RE lessons were based around Islam.
Sadia, from Durham University Mosque, came to share her knowledge with Starfish and Seahorses classes. She told them stories and explained some of the culture of Muslims. The children enjoyed seeing the resources and artefacts she kindly brought to the lesson.
Year 2 Sharks and Dolphins classes were invited to visit the Durham University Prayer Room to see how it differs from the churches visited in Bowburn. They were shown the different areas and the students demonstrated the washing rituals and prayers. The visit ended with some fun games!
We thank the members of Durham University Mosque for their kindness in helping our children understand more about Islam.
