Today, we had the pleasure of having Sahar Grahb visit our class to teach us all about Ramadan.
It was a very interesting discussion, and lots of children were asking some very intuitive questions which made it clear how much they wanted to learn.
Some of the questions included:
How often do you pray?
What do you eat?
Is it difficult?
How do you get through a really hot day without a drink?
All of these questions sparked some fantastic discussions between children and teachers. After the visit, the children continued to ask questions (and still are), as well as having more of an understanding.
We were also very lucky to see Sahar writing in Arabic which sparked even more discussion about how it is different to our writing. As well as, the children wanting to write their own name in Arabic which is hopefully something we can in the next few weeks.
A big thank you to Sahar :)
