At Portland Nursery, Amir’s daddy came into Bluebells to lead a very special group time, talking about Eid. We learnt that it is a celebration similar to Christmas for Muslims.
At Eid children and adults dress up in special party clothes, eat lots of treats and play fun games with friends and family. They pray on special mats to show they are thankful for such a special day. Amir’s daddy brought his special mat and showed the children how Amir and his family pray and Amir dressed up in his special Eid clothing to show all of his friends.
We learnt that Amir’s family speak and read Arabic and they are going to bring in some environmental print and the alphabet for us to display in nursery.
Thank you to Amir and his daddy for such a lovely, informative group time.
