Elementary 2 learnt about celebrating Ramadan and shared what they had learnt with the children in Elementary 1.
They started by talking about the relevance of fasting for Muslims and how the lunar calendar is observed to celebrate Ramadan.
The children answered questions and discussed how Muslims did not eat or drink during the hours of sunlight which at present is up to 18 hours in London. Those that were not able to fast had to feed the poor in place of fasting. This led into an interesting discussion if other religions do similar things. It was great to observe the children´s interest and all the ideas and thoughts they were sharing.
I am looking forward to exploring more festivals next term.
