At Rachel Keeling we love a celebration.
Last week many of our families, staff and local community celebrated Eid al-Fitr.
In the week running up to the celebration, children were supported to gain an understanding of the celebration.
They looked at and handled a range of artefacts, shared talk, decorated a banner and looked at information and story books.
Children learned that Muslims take off their shoes when they pray.
We talked about different ways people around the world celebrate festivals.
Some children had their hands decorated with mehndi to mark the celebration.
Children helped to bake Mammoul (date) Cookies and enjoyed afternoon tea with warm spiced milk.
