We warmly welcomed Imran to school today.

He led an assembly introducing the school to Islam as a religion. He showed us some videos, talked about the special religious objects he had brought with him and explained to us the 5 Pillars of Islam:
Belief
Prayer
Charity
Fasting
Pilgrimage

After assembly, Imran led a workshop with Y3/4 based on prayer followed by a workshop with Y5/6 on Pilgrimage.

We all agreed we had learnt a lot and had a better understanding of Islam as a peaceful religion.

Reverend Alison Fulford joined us for the assembly and said:
"I thoroughly enjoyed the assembly that Imran, an Immam from Manchester, gave on Monday morning. He shared the basics of the Muslim faith in a warm and engaging way. I could see the interest in the children's faces and quick responses to his questions. Please come again!"

I received and opened a letter this morning with some very interesting and equally exciting contents from Hannah Wardman. Beatrix's mum. The envelope contained copies of the 1901 census, vaccination record and a lovely postcard dating from 8/10/1903 addressed to Miss G. Griffiths (see photos of postcard). This is some of the information Hannah has been able to share with me and why she felt...
