This week we have been learning about Ramadan and Eid. We had an assembly on Thursday which even included a puppet show! We were interested to hear some of our Muslim children explaining how they get ready for Eid celebrations. In Year 1 we learned about Zakat – or charitable giving; and in reception we thought about how we can help by giving our time to help people too.
Year 2 children compared the celebration of Eid with some of the other festivals they have studied.
‘I notice that there are lights in all of them – Candles for Hanukkah, diyas and Christmas Trees’ decided one child, ‘no not for Eid!’ replied a friend. ‘We put up little lights in our house to decorate for Eid – so it is!’ added a third child.’ We finished the week with some lovely music outside at home-time.
