OUR LEARNING THEME: 

The children are already becoming excited about Halloween, so we will be celebrating on Monday by coming to school dressed up in our favourite costumes. We will have many fun and spooky themed activities for the children to investigate. We will explore some of the traditions associated with Halloween such as “Trick or Treat”, carving pumpkins, Halloween games, and wearing special costumes. The children will also have lots of opportunities to explore new sensory resources. They may make their own potions and mixtures, or perhaps create a mummy from tape or bandages.  

KEY VOCABULARY

Halloween, spooky, costume, traditions, games

LANGUAGE AND COMMUNICATION

Through songs, rhymes, dance and stories, we will expand our v ocabulary and sense of rhyme and rhythm. We will have fun using our voices in different ways, for example, cackling like a witch, roaring like a monster and shouting “Boo!”  to scare our friends.

KEY VOCABULARY

Cat, spider, witch, spell, pumpkin, scary, monster
