We had a very special day in Y5 this week to celebrate the festival of Eid. The teachers, and a group of lovely parents, have been working hard for weeks to prepare the day and it was a great success.

We started the day with a presentation from Mr Guljar (an ex-parent) about his charity work. We also supported this charity by bringing in clothes that we no longer need, which will be sent to help refugees in other countries. We then had a carousel of activites during the day: writing our names in Arabic; icing Eid biscuits; learning some Arabic letters and phrases; having our hands decorated with henna; finding our about Eid and how it is celebrated; plus making Eid crowns, lanterns and crescent moons. 

We finished the day with an incredible Eid feast, trying a variety of delicious foods from different countries which were prepared by our team of parents. Here are some quotes from the children about this fantastic day.
