Last week year 5 visited the Mosque in Newcastle as part of their studies about Islam in RE.
‘It was very interesting and informative and Mohammed Kurdy who showed us around was extremely helpful and made us feel welcome.
The girls tried the original ladies head wear, in the Islamic religion females have to cover their head when they are in male company. They can only show their heads to their immediate family e.g. Dad, brother etc..
The boys tried the traditional male head covers!
We watched the Muslims taking part in their daily prayers then we looked around the Mosque and had some refreshments while we asked questions.
