The children want to learn more about Halloween and to have a party at the end of this half term. So they worked with Fran to make a plan for who would do what for Wednesday. Here is the list:
Caspar: What countries celebrate Halloween?
Lewella: Why do they have vampires and werewolves and ghosts?
Sam: How old is the celebration?
Henry: Why do they make pumpkins on Halloween?
Beth: How do they celebrate it in other countries?
Curtis: Why do they do trickle (trick or) treating? Why is it a spooky night?
