We have been leaning about the Islamic Festival of Eid al-Fitr; a holy festival celebrated by Muslims around the world. It celebrates the end of the month of Ramadan and the end of the fast.
We enjoyed celebrating this special time for Muslims with some dancing and creating Mehndi henna patterns. Mrs Mouzam- Dua’s mum kindly came into class to talk to us about her own family’s celebration of prayer, visiting family, eating special food, giving presents to children and donating to charity. She showed us some family prayer mats, the skull cap Dua’s brother Haider wears to Mosque and Dua’s hijab. We learnt loads and wish to say thanks again to Dua’s mum!
