We have had such great fun celebrating Halloween. Throwing pumpkin balls into a cauldron, hoops over witches hats, dressing up, cutting up pumpkins followed by a game of the traditional duck, duck, goose that we improvised to witch, witch, wand. Lots of turn taking.

Halloween question making

Halloween questions

P3/4 did really well in creating questions in co operative partners this week!

We made sure that our partner either read or listened to the text being read and spent lots of time creating questions verbally where the answer could be found in the text, We then wrote the question down on the whiteboard using question words from the board and knowing that question mark goes at the end, Great job P3/4!


This week we really enjoyed spending a morning with our P6/7 buddies, who helped us to cut and stick our scary pumpkin faces and played some Halloween themed games with us! P1 showed great perseverance when threading our spiders webs and cutting out our ghosts to decorate our classroom with!


It was great seeing P1’s Halloween costumes. We did some Halloween yoga to get ourselves moving! I hope you all have a great weekend and lots of fun on Sunday!

We had lots of fun creating our skeleton art work yesterday. We had to work cooperatively with our new talking partners to complete this task. We used cotton buds to make the skeleton bones!

It was great seeing everyone dressed up and all excited for Halloween. We created spider webs and danced in the dark! I hope everyone has fun on Sunday!
