This week we have been to Green Lane Masjid to find out more about Islam. We were taken on a tour of the mosque and were shown where worshippers wash before praying. Our guide, Umar, told us the history of the mosque. We were amazed to hear that the building used to be a swimming pool!
Umar showed us where the Imam stands and we even had a go at talking into the microphone.
For the Engage part of our new topic, we went into the hall for a royal tea party. We learned to sing the National Anthem and then we made our own Union Flag. We got plenty of chance to wave them as we soon had a very special visitor- the Queen!
Today we thought about new year’s resolutions- a promise that people make to themselves at the start of a new year. We thought about things that we could try to improve such as our health, fitness and school work.
The day started with an assembly by Mrs Simpson. She read the story ‘Have You Filled A Bucket Today?’ We fill each other’s imaginary buckets with kind words and actions each day but if we are unkind to someone then we take away from their bucket.
Later we made friendship paper chains and cards amongst many other things.
Our reading sessions got off to a great New Year start today. We had a huge turn out!
