PUPILS from a Copthorne school were taken on a cultural visit to learn about Islam at a mosque.
Year 1 and 2 pupils at Copthorne Pre-prep School learned how to recite prayers in Arabic when they took a tour of Broadfield Mosque last month.
They heard how the mosque can accommodate 2,500 people and that many of the Muslim children attend a special school at the mosque from 5pm to 7pm to learn how to read the Qu’ran.
The children were shown how Muslims pray and were allowed to join in themselves if they wanted to.
The Year 1 pupils have also separately learnt about Chinese New Year.
