Last Halloween students from 1st, 2nd and 3rd year of compulsory secondary education (ESO) did different activities related to this anglosaxon festivity. They visited an exhibition which content was based on its origins and traditions. These students developed different skills related to English language learning, such as looking for specific information, writing and speaking within the classroom context.
1st year students made some creepy greeting cards to wish their classmates a ‘happy Halloween’ and they decorated them adding some lollipops disguised as ghosts and vampires. Other students from 3rd year spent one hour decorating cupcakes with some icing. They brought the ingredients and followed the recipe in order to prepare the decorations and finally eat them. Some of the most spectacular decorations were scary monsters, cookie monsters, vampires and ghosts.
Finally, 1st and 2nd year students watched the film titled ‘Nightmare before Christmas’ in the Assembly Hall.
