Today, we went on a visit to Jamia Mosque in Derby. We were so excited to see the inside of a Mosque and spot the features we had learnt about during our RE lessons. When we arrived, we were greeted by 2 volunteers are local to Jamia Mosque and choose this as their place of worship. We looked at the Mosque from the outside to see what features we could spot and impressed our volunteers with what we already knew! We were very respectful the entire trip, making sure we wore head coverings and took our shoes off when we entered the Mosque. We were shown around the Mosque to learn about the washrooms for wudu, prayer halls on 2 different levels that had prayer mats already printed on the carpet. After the tour, we focused on 2 main areas with the 2 volunteers: to understand what and how Muslims practice; and what Muslims believe in. We sat in the prayer hall and shared what we could see and why we thought they were important. For example, an Imam stands on a minbar when reading passages from the Qur’an. We had a great morning with the other schools in our Federation! It was lovely to see what we had learnt about in our lessons by going to a real Mosque.
