Pri­mary pupils learn about Is­lam

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

PRI­MARY school chil­dren learned about an­other re­li­gion first hand when a par­ent came in to give a talk.

The Year 5 and 6 pupils at Prest­bury CE Pri­mary School learned all about the five pil­lars of Is­lam from Siba Al-Haimus, mother of one of the pupils, as part of a se­ries of talks on dif­fer­ent re­li­gions.

Head­teacher David Capener said: “The chil­dren are learn­ing about Is­lam as part of their Religious Education unit.

“They showed a real in­ter­est in the topic and I think it’s a re­ally im­por­tant faith to un­der­stand, es­pe­cially in our lo­cal­ity.”

“It was great to have Siba come in as she re­ally brought the chil­dren’s learn­ing to life, rather than them just read­ing about the topic in a book.”

Class teacher Han­nah But­ler said: “It’s good to have the learn­ing first-hand.

“The chil­dren are free to ask any ques­tions they like and can also talk about per­sonal ex­pe­ri­ences they may have had.”
