Year One learn about Ramadan


The year one children were treated to a very special assembly this morning.  Maryam's mum and Samir's mum came into school to share their knowledge of Ramadan and Eid, which are important events in the Islamic calendar.  The children learnt about why Muslims fast, say special prayers, spend more time reading the Quran and help those less fortunate than themselves.  The children asked some interesting questions and also got to try dates (which Muslim's eat to break their fast).  The children really enjoyed learning about Islam and sat beautifully throughout the assembly.
