Happy Halloween!!!

With mid-term break fast approaching, we have been very busy in fifth class, focusing on our theme “Spooky Halloween”.

In geography we explored the Mexican tradition of “Dia de los Muertos” (Day of the Dead). We even made our own sugar skull decorations in art!

We also decorated our classroom door to look like Frankenstein. Do you like it?

It was very interesting learning all about the History of Halloween and we especially enjoyed discovering all about the famous author Bram Stoker. Did you know that his mother was from Sligo? Some people believe the stories that she told Bram about the cholera epidemic in Sligo inspired his horror stories!

Last week we had an election in our class for fifth class Student Council Representative. After hearing some terrific presentations made by the class, votes were cast and tallied. We are delighted to announce that our representatives are Cara Aldridge and Killian Bonney! We have no doubt that they will be fantastic in their new roles.

As today is the last day before our mid-term break, we were allowed to wear our Halloween costumes to school. Everyone looks great. There are various costumes from zombies to mummies and even a sumo wrestler and gingerbread man!

We would like to wish you all a very HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Enjoy and stay safe.
