20 Oct Halloween in Room 1
We have been busy in Room 1 learning about Halloween and the skeleton.
Did you know that Halloween originated from The Celts that lived in Ireland over 2,000 years ago? However, they did not call it Halloween like we do today, instead they referred to it as Samhain. On the 31st October people lit bonfires and dressed up to scare away the spooky spirits.
Maybe you are dressing up as a skeleton for Halloween this year. Our skeleton is made up of bones which are alive. A baby has about 300 bones which grow into each other so that when you are fully grown you have 206 bones. Did you know that the femur in your leg is the longest bone in the body?
Why don’t skeletons ever go trick or treating?
Because they have no-body to go with.
Have a look at our Pumpkin Patch and Skeletons.
