SCARY FUN: The children took part in lots of different activities across all areas of learning
Pupils at Ramsgate Arts Primary School enjoyed a screamtastic day packed full of fun and learning to celebrate Halloween.
Ghoulish games and creepy creativity gave the Reception class pupils, aged four and five, a day to remember. The youngsters dressed in their favorite spooky costumes of witches, vampires, ghosts, zombies, and skeletons, with the odd superhero joining in as well. There were plenty of wild and colorful hairstyles to set off the costumes, some even included bats and spiders.
An array of fun learning activities in the specially decorated classrooms included making witch and skeleton cut outs, while dancing to Halloween songs which was a big hit with the children.
Early years foundation studies lead, Sophie Spurrier, explained: “All RAPS Reception children looked spookily splendid in their Halloween outfits – it was clear a lot of thought, time and effort had gone into many of the costumes, make-up, and hair coloring 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 colorful 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.”
Ramsgate Arts Primary School is part of the Viking Academy Trust along with Upton Junior School at Broadstairs, and Chilton Primary School in Ramsgate.
