We have had a wonderful week of Halloween fun in Reception. The children have thoroughly enjoyed our spooky role play area, making potions, doing spaghetti painting (the children said they were the spells coming out of the cauldron), using tweezers to pick up Halloween pasta shapes and making a witch using 2D shapes. We watched a PowerPoint about Halloween traditions and found out that it is celebrated around the world. We also had a Halloween story in the spooky house, to create an ambience we made the classroom dark and lit the pumpkin that we carved together. We talked about fire safety and that an adult should light a candle. The children also experienced the pumpkin lit up in the blackout tent. The children had such a lot of fun and we did lots of learning.
