On Monday 12th February, Year 2 travelled on the coach to London Central Mosque. They were welcomed by a friendly tour guide who was very funny! They got to see a model of the mosque that Muslims go to on pilgrimage, learn all about the 5 pillars of Islam and find out about some important people in the faith of Islam. They were very lucky to be allowed in the prayer room where they took their shoes off and sat and watched a prayer taking place. Year 2 had a fabulous day exploring the religion of Islam.
We participated in this national themed week at Prae Wood and gave time and thought across the year groups to how we can all look after our own -and other’s- wellbeing. Much of this centred on the giving of kindness. KS1 and KS2 pupils enjoyed kindness workshop assemblies on Friday from charity 52 Lives, where they discussed and learnt about the amazing physical, mental and social benefits of being kind; did you know that being kind helps us live longer? Don’t forget to talk to your children about what they have learned in school and how they can carry this on beyond the school gates in their words and actions.
The image selected here shows some fantastic responses from our Year 6 pupils to the assemblies.
