Welcome back from the long weekend! Last week in The Children’s House we had a wonderful time going to the GAA field and doing football training with one of the dads – a lot of the children were also displaying amazing rugby skills….! As well as this, we had a lovely time on Friday decorating Hallowe’en cookies in the 9am class with one of the mums. We’d like to thank all the parents who are coming in and doing activities with the children at the moment, it’s just fantastic!
This week we will be continuing in our preparations for the Hallowe’en, by making spooky playdough in Hallowe’en colours of green, orange and black, and creating more fantastic Hallowe’en crafts to decorate your homes with!! We will be having a philosophical discussion about what would happen if we had no seasons (the children may relate their learning about Autumn and hibernation to this), and then on a less serious note – or maybe a less quieter note! – we will be having our fancy dress Hallowe’en party at the end of the week with face painting, games and dancing! Happy Hallowe’en everyone!!
Five Little Skeletons:
Five little skeletons sitting on a gate (5 fingers up)
The first one said ‘Oh my it’s getting late’ (hands on cheeks)
The second one said ‘There’s a chill in the air (arms around self)
The third one said ‘But we don’t care’ (swing index finger)
The fourth one said ‘We’re ready for some fun’ (hands in air)
The fifth one said ‘Let’s run & run & run’ (running motion)
Then ‘oooo’ went the wind, and out went the lights,
And the five little skeletons ran out of sight!
Ghost Chant (recite very quietly):
Ghost so scary,
Ghost so white,
Don’t scare (shout child’s name)
On Hallowe’en night!!
