The toddlers at Dewsbury have been learning all about Ramadan.
They have been trying on kurta’s and topee (hats) and hijabs (scarves), showing us how to use the prayer mats and beads and reading books about Ramadan. They’ve also explored with star and crescent shapes in the paint and play dough.
We really value learning and celebrating cultures with children in nursery. Cultural education is beneficial in several ways:
– It encourages children to value other cultures and build respect for others.
– It helps children to develop a sense of identity and understand their place in the world.
– It opens up new experiences, eg trying new foods, taking part in different kinds of celebrations.
