The highlight of the week was whenYear 4 visited the Madinah Mosque in Sheffield. The chance to visit a place of worship is always a fascinating experience and the children revelled in the experience. I was very impressed by the questions that the children were asking, and pleased to see that the different elements of the Islamic faith that we had covered in the class, were used when talking to our guides.
The children were very interested in the different clocks and the size of the prayer halls. However once again the massive chandelier received probably the biggest gasps of the day. There was certainly an excited buzz from the first glimpses of the mosque from the bus window through to the chatter on the bus on the way home.
