Ramadan 2024

When is Ramadan 2024?

This Monday the 4th of March we welcomed Asma from Telford Central Mosque to talk to the children about Ramadan. Asma told us about how Muslims all over the world would be paying special attention to their faith during this holy month. Many children knew lots about Ramadan from their learning in school, their community or their own faith. Some children l that many Muslims would be dedicating time to reading Surahs (chapters) of the Quran, fasting, giving to charity or helping others, spending time with family and friends and attending Mosque for an extra prayer during Ramadan.
The children asked thoughtful questions and observed our school and British values conscientiously. Asma praised the children and our learning environment, commenting on the warm feeling and interest of the children, even down to our youngest Reception students.
We thank her and Telford Central Mosque for enriching our learning!

Poetry day with Pep the Poet

We had a fantastic visit from Pep the poet. He treated us to some funny, inspiring and silly poems. Our favourite part was when Pep read his poems in different accents and encouraged us to fill in the rhyming words. We laughed and wanted to write our own poems, just like Pep!
