In RE today we were learning about how Muslims respect their God. We found out about the 5 pillars of Islam:
- Shahada: Faith.
- Salat: prayer.
- Zakāt: charity.
- Sawm: fasting.
- Hajj: pilgrimage to Mecca.
Once we had talked about them, we played a matching game where we had to match up the information to the right pillar.
Then we created our own information poster in the shape of a pillar about one of the pillars. We are going to cut them out and make our own temple with them! I was particularly impressed by the Arabic writing some of the children did on their pillar! It’s interesting for us to see and learn about other languages.
