The five to seven-year-olds were given a tour of the prayer hall facilities on Wednesday - the first such school visit since it was completed last year.

Class teacher, Roxanne Graney, said: “We have been learning about Islam and a parent, Mrs Khan, attends the mosque so I thought we would go along for a visit.

“This term we are learning about sacred spaces of different religions and we have also been to our village church.”
