"Eid" in Arabic means "feast"- Eid al- Fitr which means "Festival to break the fast" is at the end of the holy month of Ramadan in which followers of Islam (Muslim) fast for a whole month.
It is a religious Holiday celebrated around the world by the Muslim community and begins when the first new moon is sighted each year. In nursery the children have enjoyed investigating a variety of traditional party clothing from the celebration, watching animated videos and songs to learn more about Ramadan and Eid, engaging in sensory food provocations using foods eaten during this special time such as honey, dates, apricots and figs and also making beautiful Henna inspired artwork prints!
As part of our commitment to focusing on self-awareness, people and communitites; we look at similarities and differences between each other and encourage an understanding that others may have different ideas, opinions, beliefs and backrounds.
Eid Muburak everyone!
