Religious Studies - 13/03/2018

Year 1 & Year 2 visit St Mary’s Church and the Northwich Mosque as part of their Religious Studies.

During their Religious Education lessons this half term, Year 1 and 2 children have been looking at different places of worship.

In order to bring this learning to life a visit to visit St Mary's Church in Weaverham was arranged where the Vicar, Mr Andrew Brown, explained more about the church and gave them a guided tour of the grounds. Mr Brown explained further about the practices which take place in the church and gave them some history behind the building.

Pupils then had the opportunity to visit a Northwich Mosque, on Church Road, which is actually run by the uncle of a pupil in Year 2. During their visit to the mosque the children were shown around the two prayer rooms and the washing facilities before listening to an explanation of Islam and how the Mosque is used by its community members.
