During the week of 26th October we held our Halloween celebrations. This is a fun opportunity for children to explore and role play scarier characters. This helps them to understand themselves and their fears better. We saw children in an array of characters from witches, skeletons and ghosts to Elsa, Batman and even a scare crow. As usual, the staff also got into the spirit and dressed up all week.
We had some creative crafts created by the Kindergarten children. These works of art were designed using the children’s own imagination and knowledge about Halloween. The children used this opportunity to learn how to manipulate resources to investigate, assemble and invent scary art work. While working alongside each other, it provided the children with the opportunity to respond to ideas and suggestions from others and to recognise each other’s achievements. The Caterpillars, Jitterbugs and Honeybees all made various decorations that included pumpkins, lanterns and spiders.
We were very impressed with what the children created simply using their imagination, and look forward to seeing all the exciting dress-ups next year.
