We were very busy during Aistear for Halloween. Our role play area was turned into a fancy dress shop. We began our first week reading the book ‘Room on the Broom’. At the sand area we searched for Room on the broom cards and sorted them into their correct sets. At the cutting area we carefully cut out skeletons, spooky Halloween pumpkins and created five little pumpkin scenes. We also sequenced the nursery rhyme Incy Wincy Spider. We made masks, spooky ghosts and painted pumpkins at the art area. We built spooky witches houses, cafes and brooms from twigs. We made bat wings, witches hats, spiders and pumpkin faces with playdough. We really enjoyed this theme.
