Preschool children at Highfield Day Nursery in Edgbaston have been marking Eid-al-Adha by enjoying a range of activities.
Everyone has been enjoying the homemade cakes as preschool have been busy baking. They have also been dressing in brightly coloured clothes and making vibrant art collages.
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 Jo Hassan said:
“At Highfield 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.
