B Cador: January 2016
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:
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 was impressed with how well the children used the...

Before we could even think about making them, we needed to investigate the properties of the materials that we found on the 'garbage dump'. We couldn't make a mattress without...
