Parenting During Ramadan

This is a guest post by Lorna Baxter.

Ramadan2017 is estimated to fall on Friday 26th May and end on or around the Sunday 25th June.

As a parent, it can be difficult to know how to approach this special time with children. It is important for Muslim children to feel the importance of such celebrations. They may be in the minority amongst their class or friends at school that are celebrating Ramadan, so you want them to feel confident identifying themselves and comfortable talking about Ramadan; what it signifies and why it occurs.

Letter of the Week: g for gumballs


Last week's letter was g. Usually we focus on gorillas, grapes and Goldilocks. This time, though, we've made gumballs only because we've been using starfall.com Their alphabet phonics song had g for gumballs and there was an animated gumball. The children loved it so I thought we'd make a gumball craft.

Review: Hannah Travels Books

Title: Hannah Travels
Author: Mai Hazem
Illustrator: Ahmed Moneer
Age: 4-7 year olds

“The purpose of my stories are to grasp the diversity we see in todays’ classrooms, as they are filled with kids from all different parts of the world. There is a goal to educate kids about the cultures their classmates come from. It is done in the hope of not only educating and informing young minds, both geographically and culturally, but also opening hearts to acceptance of what may be perceived as ‘different.’ By starting at a young age, we decrease the borders of the future and bring us closer to being one world, one people.” Mai Hazem

Letter of the Week: d for dinosaur


Last week, the toddler group was looking at dinosaurs.

I'd found this dinosaur paper bag puppet online but I didn't have any paper bags. So I used the split pins to attached the head to the body. When we did this, the children were able to lift the dino's head up and down to show it's teeth.
