Screamtastic Day of Fun and Learning
Ghoulish games and creepy creativity gave young children a Halloween to remember at Ramsgate Arts Primary School.
Reception class pupils aged four and five enjoyed a screamtastic day packed full of fun activities and learning.
The youngsters dressed in their favourite spooky costumes and the colourful array included witches, vampires, ghosts, zombies and skeletons, with the odd superhero joining in as well. There were plenty of wild and colourful hairstyles with some including bats and spiders.
An array of fun learning activities in the specially decorated Halloween classrooms included making witch and skeleton cut outs, while dancing to Halloween songs was a big hit.
Early Years Foundation Studies Lead Sophie Spurrier explained: “All RAPS Reception children looked spookily splendid in their outfits – it was clear a lot of thought, time and effort had gone into many of the costumes, make-up and hair colouring and styling.
“The children were immersed in lots of different activities across all areas of learning while in the outdoor play area there were different kinds of sensory and art challenges. They also enjoyed role playing such as making gruesome food concoctions in the kitchen or making spells using the colourful mud in the mud kitchen.
“Special fun learning days with creativity at the heart are really important as they allow children to fully immerse themselves in art and performance and this becomes a starting point for other areas of learning.”
