What happens at Eid al-Fitr?

Lesson: Religious education

Class: Foundation Stage Year: 2020 - 2021

Today we shared our knowledge about Ramadan from last week – we had remembered a lot! We talked about the end of Ramadan being called Eid al-Fitr (the festival of the breaking of the fast). Then watched a video of a family celebrating Eid: they wear special clothes, visit the Mosque, read the Qu’ran, say prayers, have food with family and friends and share gifts.

At snack time we tried dates and fig rolls – these are foods which Muslims eat at the end of Ramadan to mark the end of fasting. We talked about how this might feel.

We all made star and moon decorations and wrote down what our good deed would be.
