W/C 27.04.20 - RE Learning: Ramadan 

What is Ramadan?

Here are some activities you may like to do at home... 

Since the beginning of Ramadan is decided based on moon sightings, why not have some fun and look at how the moon’s phases change every day? These moon sighting binoculars are perfect for the task!

In the days before smart phones and alarm clocks, many villages had a designated Ramadan drummer. This person would wake up really early and start walking through the streets beating his drum, waking everyone up so they wouldn’t miss their Sehri. Why not make your own drums at home? 

The Curious George books are popular among little ones worldwide, and this Ramadan edition is part of the series. This is a truly adorable story about George helping his friend, Kareem, to keep his fast. The two learn about Ramadan and also figure out ways to get through a fasting day! There are lots of readings of this story on YouTube.

Ramadan is a time for setting good habits and doing as many good deeds as possible. Why not keep a track of your good deeds with the help of a good deeds tree? Use it to record everything, like helping Mummy or Daddy make tea, being kind to brothers and sisters, or staying at home during the Coronavirus pandemic to keep others safe.
