Winchmore Hill Day Nursery marks Eid-al-Adha with fun filled activities
Preschool children at the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Enfield have been marking Eid-al-Adha by enjoying a range of activities.
The children have been making Mandala hand pictures using lentils, beans, mixed herbs and spices to decorate mandala patterned hands. The textures used are traditional ingredients used in cooking during Eid celebrations.
Music and dancing with musical instruments have filled the nursery as children learn about different cultures through exploring sounds and movement. The interactive whiteboard has been used to explore the meaning of Eid-UL-Adha and the children have also been inspired by listening to stories about the religious festival.
Nursery Manager Carli Toal said:
“At Woodberry we celebrate a number of different cultural and religious festivals throughout the year. These events are great springboards for learning about different cultures and the world around us.”
Eid-al-Adha is a Muslim festival and is also known as the Feast of Sacrifice. The date changes each year in accordance with the lunar calendar and this year runs from 1st to the 5th September.
