Why do Muslims celebrate Ramadan?

Lesson: Religious education

Class: Foundation Stage Year: 2020 - 2021

Today we have talked about another festival - Ramadan. We found out that Muslims do special things during this time: they fast (do not eat) in daylight hours, they pray 5 times a day and they do good deeds. We listened to a story about Rameena who opened her Ramadan calendar – the message said she should do something to help someone else. She helped her neighbour to tidy the garden, washed the dishes at the community centre and shared food with a friend.

Muslims decorate their homes at this time – we made lanterns and decorated them.

We know that at the end of Ramadan, Muslims celebrate another festival – Eid.
