In Y6 we have been learning about personal faith and beliefs.
Iqra took the opportunity to describe her Muslim beliefs to her class. She explained how she prepared for her payers and then Iqra demonstrated how she prayed facing towards the East. Other Muslim pupils contributed their own comments about how they prayed and the reasons why certain rituals are followed.
It was rewarding to see everyone listen respectfully and even more rewarding to see how genuinely interested 6JM were in learning about the beliefs of their fellow classmates. Several pupils said afterwards that they found learning from their friends more meaningful than just reading it in a book.
6JM, I thought you were very mature, Mr Rivers
