Year 5: Project 13 - Religious Education - Islam

Religious Education - Exploring Other Faiths


Islam - Ramadan and Eid 


As part of our Religious Education curriculum, each year we explore two other faiths. For this project, you will be learning about Islam. In particular, you will be focusing on the the Islamic festival: Ramadan


During the month of Ramadan, Muslims won't eat or drink between dawn and sunset. This is called fasting.

Fasting is important during Ramadan as it allows Muslims to devote themselves to their faith and come closer to Allah, or God. Fasting is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which form the basis of how Muslims live their lives. The other pillars are faith, prayer, charity and make a pilgrimage to Makkah (or the western translation - Mecca). 


In this project you will explore what takes place during Ramadan and the celebration called Eid that follows. 

Below you can find the resources that go along with each task and some child-friendly videos that will support your learning.
