Year 6 visited the Norwich Mosque and Norwich Anglican Cathedral as part of their studies of both Islam and Christianity.

We set off from Framlingham College Prep School full of excitement and were met at Norwich Cathedral by our guides. After an informative talk we were split into two groups and were taken on two wonderful tours, learning about the beautiful 900 year old Norwich Cathedral, hearing Bible stories from the Old and New Testaments, and finding out more about the history of the Cathedral and about Christian symbolism. There was particular excitement at the cathedral as the next day they were welcoming the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.

After lunch we traveled to Norwich Ihsan Mosque and were greeted with a with warm reception at the mosque by Hajj Tariq, who is the Mu’addin (calls people to prayer). Tariq told the children all about his faith and beliefs and explained to the children about the 5 pillars of Islam. We then had the amazing experience of being in the mosque during afternoon prayers. Tariq then invited the children to ask him questions. Almost an hour later, our boys and girls had thrilled Tariq with a huge range of questions and impressed him with their knowledge.

Again our guides were incredibly complimentary about the boys and girls and as we journeyed back we listened to the children discussing the day – it was clear that they had had a most wonderful time in Norwich.
