Week Ending 14th September 2012

The first "whole" week at School, this term, has been very exciting and informative.  Our theme for the term is "Celebrations and Festivals", so, on Wednesday morning, coaches arrived to transport lots of us to Luton, where we were privileged to visit the Mosque.  On arrival, there was a warm welcome, then a talk and a tour.  The children (and adults) sat on magnificent red carpets, and listened and watched, in awe and wonder, as artefacts were examined.  Everyone had a gift of fruit on leaving, and an enjoyable time was had by all.  The subsequent picnic was fun, with yet more tasty treats!  There was even time to play in the park and whizz up and down slides, and swing happily!  Here is a selection of photos, so that the experience is more meaningful to all.

In the future, there are plans to discover facts about other religions, incorporating local visits, and visitors coming into school to share their customs and beliefs.  What better way to learn about other cultures!
