Year 2 - Mosque letter

Monday January 7th 2019.

 

Dear Parents/ Carers,

 

Year 2 Religious Education trip to Masjid E Noor Mosque – Gloucester Wednesday 13th February.

 

The new syllabus in Religious Education for Gloucestershire has resulted in Year 2 children carrying out 2 units on the religion Islam and 4 units on Christianity. We have already carried out the first half of our studies on ‘Who is a Muslim and how do they live?’ back in the Autumn term and now conclude our learning with the second unit within the first part of the Spring term.

 

Within this unit we have looked at the beliefs of Islam, art work and scriptures, the holy book – the Qur’an understanding the 99 names of ‘Allah’ and now move on to learning about the prophet Muhammah (PBUH) and worshipping within the Mosque.

 

To bring real life experience to this learning we have arranged for the children to visit the largest Mosque in Gloucester where the children should be able to consolidate their learning and experience first-hand what they have been taught.  We will be having an educational workshop.  The basic overview of the morning’s visit will be:

  • Introduction to Islam or talk on a particular subject.
  • A guided tour of the mosque building accompanied by a faith guide.
  • Q & A and/or discussion session.
  • Multi-media presentation about the Islamic faith.

Any further information can be found via their website:

This is a morning visit only we will need to leave school prompt at 9am and therefore ask for the children to be at school promptly at 8.45am on Wednesday 13th February.  We will be returning to school for normal lunch time hours so the children’s hot dinners will not be affected.

The cost of the visit (which includes – transportation and cost of educational workshop) will be £3.00  Please complete the permission slip below and return to your class teacher.  Payment should be made via Parent Pay (through the school website) no later than Thursday 31st January 2019.  Paying on Parent Pay grants permission for your child to attend the trip.
