We had a fantastic time at our Halloween party, we had a party with games, activities and a spooky tea to finish off. We want to say a big thank you to our fangtastic children that made the day so fun for all. This also gave us the opportunity to discuss the origins of Halloween. It was originally an ancient Celtics harvest festival, but was later Christianized in the 835 AD. Halloween gives the children opportunities to develop their language by dressing up as characters their imitation of these characters, as well as how they re-enact stories can develop their imagination skills, and this helps them make meaningful connections between written and spoken language which in turn helps them when it’s time to learn how to read.
