All the children can participate in the competition by guessing the Christmas word.

HALLOWEEN

        The Celts lived in Western Europe about two thousand years ago.They thought that the spirits of dead people came back to life on October 31st.

 The Celts put out food and drinks to welcome the ghosts.They also lit bonfires,danced and dressed in costumes.

  As time passed,October 31st became known as Halloween.

  The tradition of carving pumpkins into jack-o´-lanterns comes from an Irish folktale about a man named Jack. 

 Everyone thougth Jack as a mean man. When he died,he was doomes to haunt the Earth forever.

  His only light was a hollow turnip with a candle inside.

  The Irish carved their own turnip jack-o´-lanterns on Halloween to keep Jack away.

  The Irish brought their Halloween traditions to North America where pumpkins were easier to carve.


  Playing tricks became part of the Halloween celebration in North A merica.Children went door to door and asked people to give them treats.

Nowadays there are different ways to celebrate Halloween and Halloween parties are very popular all over the world.

This year we decided to celebrate Halloween at school with creepy receipes and a market.


Each classroom prepared a creepy receipes with the teachers help and we also made some Halloween decorations at the Art & Crafts class.

During the morning each class went to the market to see the creepy receipes  and buy and taste a "treat" for 2 Canadian dollars.

We had a great experience!! And practiced a lot of English!!

HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT CANADA?

ARE YOU UP FOR THE CHALLENGE?


We have started a new Project this week. This project is basically “challenges” that families and students have to solve. 
The challenges are questions about some facts of Canada that they have to find out.
The project will last two months, October and November, because three teachers of the school are going to travel to Ottawa, the capital city of Canada, for those months.
They will travel with Grizzly, a cozy and fluffy teddy bear, who will be in charge of creating and solving the challenges. For every challenge solved they will win a stamp in their passport and those who have their passport full will be the winners, and the prize is a ..SUR..PRI(Z)E!!!



WE HOPE YOU ENJOY THE PROJECT AND LEARN A LOT ABOUT CANADA!!
