The word “Halloween” is an abbreviation of the “All Hallows Evening”, that is the evening before the feast of Saints, which is November 1. It originated with an ancient Celtic festival when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.
So our school dressed up and celebrated Halloween in various ways!
Beautiful witches, cute ghosts and funny skeletons arrived at school to be faced with a surprise…A table of Halloween breakfast! Everyone had some cereal and wished < Happy Halloween > to each other.
Later, we played <Halloween Bingo>, <Pin the nose on the jack-o-lantern> and < I spy…>. We also made spooky masks and scary bracelets to frighten the bad spirits away.
We made a colouring book full of Halloween drawings and we watched videos on Halloween customs. Of course, we asked for trick or treat and we all got some delicious treats!
