Year 5 have been learning about what it is like to be a Muslim living in Britain today. We thought about reasons why it might be easy but also why it could be difficult. It was great to see the children considering what it must be like to follow a religion that is unfamiliar to them and how much understanding and acceptance they demonstrated.
'I liked learning the facts and figures about how many Muslims there are living in the world, Britain and North Devon. It surprised me that there are only 281 Muslims living in North Devon. I think it would be a bit hard being a Muslim living in North Devon because the closest mosques are in Exeter and Plymouth. Also it would cost a lot of money to visit Makkah because it is so far away.'
