On Monday 9th October the whole school celebrated a community culture day, focusing on Eid on this occasion. We did this to celebrate our diverse community and to mark the celebration of Eid that happened at the beginning of September.
The children were invited to come in cultural dress and we learnt about Islam and what is involved in the Islamic religion. We had some parents who volunteered to come in and talk to the children to share their knowledge and some traditional foods with them. There was lots of learning going on throughout the day, which the children were very proud of. We then came together at the end of the day to share what we had found out and some of the work we had produced in an assembly.
All of the year groups had been very busy producing lots of different work including prayer mats, paintings, designing mehndi patterns and printing.
All of the children really enjoyed the day, found out lots of new information and gave really positive feedback about the activities. Watch this space for other cultural days in the future. If you would like to be part of any future cultural days please let us know by contacting the school office.
