On Monday the 19th of June Year 1 had a guest speaker in for our RE lesson. We have been finding facts out about Islam in our home learning this week. With Ramadan coming to an end next week (depending on the moon) Eid will be celebrated. Eid is a time for family and celebration in the Islamic faith.
We have been lucky enough to have a member of our community, Andrew, come in and give a presentation to Lavender and Jasmine classes. He brought in his prayer cap, some dates, the Quran. We learnt about the day to day life of Muslim men and women during Ramadan and Eid.
Year 1 absolutely loved Andrew and got to tell him all they have learnt and ask him many questions about Eid. WPS would like to thank Andrew for his time and for teaching year 1 about his culture and religion.
