At the school we firmly believe that knowing a language also includes knowing its culture and traditions. Often the celebrations of traditional holidays overlap in the calendar but the way they are celebrated is very different from one culture to another
The first of the celebrations we have carried out in the English classes has been Halloween. During the last week of October, we have done activities in the different levels to learn about the vocabulary, songs and poems, the origin and some traditional recipes of this festivity.
In Kindergarten we have used our senses to learn about pumpkins: we have carved them, we have touched and smelt their pulp and we have observed their seeds,
In first grade we have written words in a very creative way.
In second, we have explained a traditional story, after that we have sequenced its parts and finally we have designed our jack-o-lantern which, with the help of the QUIVER app, has been turned into 3D.
In the third year, we had a session of puzzles with Halloween vocabulary.
In fourth we recited poems dressed up with some Halloween details. We recorded the poems and sent them to our partner classes in kindergarten.
In Year 5 we designed costumes with a fun game.
In sixth grade we made a scape room with delicious fall recipes: pumpkin pie and apple crumble.
We are ready for the next festival! What will it be?
