The first of our RE visits this term was to Nelson to visit a mosque. This will be followed by a walk to the local church and an outing to Leeds, where we will look round a synagogue.
The children were fascinated to learn about the preparations and routines that are followed when Muslims pray. Even though they have learned about the Islamic faith, and some children attend mosque on a regular basis, there was something new for every child to experience.
Watch this space to find out how the children felt about their visit to St Bartholomew’s Church in Colne.
