Hello! What else did Year 6 do during their first month?

Some of us have been celebrating!!

Khadija told the class about Eid..

Eid ul Fitr is a big celebration that Muslims celebrate all over the world and it marks the end of Ramadan.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and is a time when Muslims fast (do not eat). It is intended to help teach Muslims self-discipline, self-restraint and generosity and it also reminds them of the suffering of the poor, who may rarely get to eat well.
We asked Khadija questions.  It was really interesting.

She also showed us her Henna hand designs

Henna (which is also known as Mehndi) is an ancient Body Art. It is used in creating intricate ethnic or contemporary designs and patterns.  Henna designs are traditionally put on the hands and feet of women for special ceremonies.

We looked on the internet to find out more about the designs
Have a look
