Next week, we will be celebrating Ramadan and talking to the children about the event. The children have helped us to create a lovely display for the foyer. Here is a bit of information about Ramadan for you;
What is Ramadan?
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims won't eat or drink during the hours of daylight. This is called fasting. Children are not expected to fast until they reach puberty, usually around the age of 14.
Ramadan remembers the month the Qur'an (the Muslim holy book) was first revealed to the Prophet Muhammad. The actual night that the Qur'an was revealed is a night known as Lailut ul-Qadr ('The Night of Power').
When is Ramadan?
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. The exact dates of Ramadan change every year. This is because Islam uses a calendar based on the cycles of the Moon.
In 2021 in the UK, Ramadan will begin in the evening of Monday 12 April and will end on Tuesday 11 May.
How is Ramadan celebrated?
Most Muslims fast between dawn and sunset. Fasting allows Muslims to devote themselves to their faith. It is thought to teach self-discipline and reminds them of the suffering of the poor. However, children, pregnant women, elderly people and those who are ill or travelling don't have to fast.
During Ramadan, it is common to have one meal (known as the suhoor), just before sunrise and another (known as the iftar), directly after sunset.
Happy World Autism Awareness Day!!
It was lovely to see everyone wearing something blue yesterday. We enjoyed learning facts about Autism, creating our own jigsaw pieces and talking about the fact that 'we all fit together'.
What is Autism?
Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with repetitive behaviours, speech and nonverbal communication, and social skills.
Some symptoms might include:
• Delayed language skills.
• Delayed movement skills.
• Delayed cognitive or learning skills.
• Hyperactive, impulsive, and/or inattentive behaviour.
• Unusual eating and sleeping habits.
• Unusual mood or emotional reactions.
World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) aims to highlight the hurdles that people with autism face every day. Autism is a growing health issue that is gaining more understanding and WAAD activities are planned every year to further increase and develop world knowledge of children and adults who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
World Autism Awareness Day goes one step further to celebrate the unique talents of those with autism, while putting a huge focus on the warm embrace and welcome that these skills deserve through community events around the globe.
Different ways to celebrate this day include:
• Learn about the history of Autism
• Wear Blue or an item of clothing which represents an Autism organisation
• Check out the work of famous people with Autism
• Find sensory toys and tools that help
• Support Autism-Friendly businesses and employers
• Read books and watch videos about Autism
• Spread kindness
The challenge of autism drove an artist to succeed…Why not check out the amazing micro-sculptures exhibition by Dr. Willard Wigan in Birmingham…you won’t be disappointed!!
Happy Autism Awareness Day!!

Here at ABC Codsall this week, we have been celebrating World Down's Syndrome Day.
World Down's Syndrome Day (WDSD) is a global awareness day which has been officially observed by the United Nations since 2012.
The date for WDSD is the 21st day of the 3rd month. This date was selected to signify the uniqueness of the triplication (trisomy) of the 21st chromosome which causes Down's syndrome.
Down's syndrome is a naturally occurring chromosomal arrangement that has always been a part of the human condition. Down's Syndrome is universally present across racial, gender or socioeconomic lines in approximately 1 in 800 live births. Down's syndrome usually causes varying degrees of intellectual and physical disability and associated medical issues.
There are three types of Down's Syndrome:
• Trisomy 21: In 95% of cases, babies born with Down's Syndrome have one extra copy of chromosome 21, giving them three total.
• Translocation: In 3% of cases, a partial or whole chromosome is attached (translocated) to a different chromosome rather than being a separate chromosome 21.
• Mosaic: In about 2% of cases, some of the person’s cells have three copies of chromosome 21, but other cells have two copies. Children with mosaic Down syndrome have fewer characteristics of Down syndrome.
Our children have enjoyed designing/painting their own socks, odd sock activities, and 'Circle Times' to discuss how we all look different but should all be treated equally. Preschool also had a water activity to help sort the socks and wash them to put them on the washing line.
Happy Friday Everyone...Have a lovely weekend!!
Sign of the week - 'Down's Syndrome Day'

Here at ABC Codsall, the children have been creating lots of different arts and crafts in preparation for St. Patrick's Day.
St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland who lived during the fifth century. He was credited with bringing Christianity to the people of Ireland. His most well known legend is that he explained the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) using the three leaves of the Shamrock.
St. Patrick’s Day is acknowledged and celebrated each year on March 17th which is the date St. Patrick died.
The Shamrock, a symbol of Ireland, is a type of clover which usually has three leaves. The three leaves stand for faith, hope, and love. A Shamrock with four leaves is meant to bring you lots of luck.
Parades usually take place on St. Patrick’s Day and traditional food is eaten, including Corned Beef and Cabbage, Shepherd’s Pie, and Irish Soda Bread.
Happy St Patricks Day everyone!!
