Peer Teaching at its Best

Posted on Tuesday 1 May 2018 by Webmaster

Last Friday, pupils  in Key Stage 2 were treated to a brilliant RE lesson from a Muslim teacher - none other than Tahmina from Y5!
Children in Y3, Y4 and Y5 have been learning about the significance of prayer in major world faiths, and Tahmina offered to bring in some beautiful Islamic prayer mats to show in class.
What we weren’t expecting was for Tahmina to teach all three groups all about the rituals, meaning and importance of Muslim prayer - and to answer lots of our questions about her faith!
She told us about the five prayers Muslims say each day; their names, and the time they are recited; as well as the significance of the design of the mats themselves.  She demonstrated how Muslims prepare to pray - and even chose volunteers to have a go themselves!
A big thank you to Tahmina from all of us - for bringing the lesson to life, and for being such a great teacher!
