The class learnt about the Day of the Dead in Mexico and how it originated, what it means and how people celebrate it.
Last Monday, all the groups got together, made skull designs and painted each other’s faces. The students have been amazing and we are really proud of how well they did. They have really engaged with the activity and they showed great creativity with their designs.
Here are a couple of quotes from them:
“The day of the dead is a day to celebrate the life of the ancestors. It is a very fun day to be happy, not sad. There are many traditions, like for examples, families go and visit the cemetery. The main day to celebrate on is November 1. It was really fun and I really enjoyed it” – Elsa
“It was very fun because we learnt how the Day of the Dead is celebrated in Mexico; it was also incredibly fun to get my face painted” ;) – Quinten
We hope you enjoy the selection of snaps taken from the day.
