In Year 1 we have done many activities to engage with Ramadan!
One of the things that we loved about Ramadan was the decorations in the classroom! We were amazed and in awe with the balloons and bunting that was put up in our classroom.
An activity that we did in English was to learn about Khadija, the Prophet Muhammad’s (PBUH) wife. We learned that she was such a patient, honest and kind hearted woman and we wanted to aspire to have qualities like her to become a better Muslim. Once we learnt about her, we used our knowledge to do our own acrostic poem.
In addition to this in Drama we are doing a play about showing Patience like Khadija. We are trying extremely hard to show emotions and expression whilst saying our lines.
Another task we have done during Ramadan was calligraphy writing to spell the word ‘Iqra’ meaning ‘Read’. We had so much fun and we concentrated so hard!
