Story one: Rubina Perveen

On Friday 10th October the whole school gathered to watch a short role play by year 5 and year 6 pupils. The play demonstrated how Muslims celebrate Eid.

The festival begins when the first sight of the new moon is seen in the sky. Muslims in most countries rely on an official sighting, rather than looking at the sky themselves.

The pupils at Byron Wood demonstrated this by role play. At the end of the assembly, a gathering of parents enjoyed all the traditional foods which are normally enjoyed on the occasion of an Eid day!

Story two: Saira Mustafa Y5

Byron Wood Primary School held a special assembly because it had recently been Eid. There was food and dancing and parents also came along, we all loved it. One parent said: “We all really enjoyed it, the dancing was incredible.” We also had a little help in this from some brilliant students of Fir Vale Secondary School. And we all would like to thank the one and only Mr Esam, Miss Mohamed and Miss Sadique.
