Learning about Islam with some special visitors!

Emperors were ever so lucky to have some special visitors in today. Ismaeel and Ayesha’s mums came into our class to tell us a bit more about Muslim prayer after our unit of work last half term. They shared so much knowledge including recapping the names of the 5 Pillars of Islam, the name for prayer (salat), the reasons why prayer is so important and how they fit it in to their daily lives. We had a look at some of the items they use, and we all got to try some dates, the deliciously sweet fruit used to break fast during Ramadan. It is always wonderful to have people come into share their own faiths and experiences. Thank you so much ladies for a well organised and beautifully delivered talk.
