We have all really enjoyed learning about Islam this week and making comparison between the Christian faith and the Muslim faith. To end our week with a bang we learnt about Ramadan and the reason Muslims fast during this time. As a celebration the children moved around 4 different activities to appreciate and understand how Muslims may celebrate Ramadan, these included;
Making paper chains and writing messages to show how they would carry out a kind act for others.
We made smoothies called Lassi. This is a drink Muslims have during the hours of darkness. Muslims usually use mango, we decided to use a mixture of vegetables. Can you remember what we used?
The children also made repeating pattern necklaces called Dhikr and designed their own Mehendi patterns.
We has a great week celebrating the Islamic faith and learnt about mutual respect and tolerance.
