AUTUMN TERM MADNESS

Part of the first half term was RE Theme Week. Year 5 were researching and learning about Islam. They visited the Birmingham 'Islamic Experience', where they found out about the true religion of Islam and how closely connected to other religions, such as Christianity and Judaism, it is. The children wrote about their visit:

'It was a 5 star experience!'; 'I found many new things, such as children having rights in Islam.'; ' I thought Islam was bad because what I have seen on the news, but really it is about peace and obedience'; 'I enjoyed all of the experience as I learnt lots of facts I didn't know before' ; 'My favourite section was Islamic Science. Did you know that the first person to invent algebra was Islamic?'; 'I loved it! I would recommend anyone reading this to go there. We learnt a lot about the 5 pillars.'
