An end to a busy week!

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.

  1. Your paper chains with special messages on were thought provoking to read as well as eye catching.

    I also loved seeing the library full of very quiet children concentrating on threading their beads on their dhikr necklaces with interesting patterns. You taught me that muslims touch a bead as they say a prayer and that they say them quite quickly moving along the necklace.
