This year Halloween has been equally terrifying, or even more so, than previous courses. Our school has been fantastically decorated with the work done by the students of first and second cycle of ESO and of the first year of bachillerato. Besides, students of PMAR and basic vocational training have also contributed their bit.
We are going to tell you about the spooky jobs that students have done for Halloween and we will also show you some pictures to share with you.
First Cycle of ESO
ESO’s first cycle works have focused on the figure and legend of Count Dracula. Students have researched the origins of the most famous vampire in history and have learned a lot about this evil character.
Students have shown great interest and have demonstrated outstanding imagination in the crafts they have made: coffins, vampires and figures of varied shapes and materials have filled the exhibition.
The students of First Cycle also made some yummy and frightening Dracula Cakes that they shared with the rest of their classmates. Delicious!!!
Thanks to Marta Jordán Ordiales , the First Cycle teacher , for her collaboration to these amazing works.
HALLOWEEN ACROSTIC POEMS
SECOND CYCLE OF ESO AND PMAR
To celebrate this festival of terror, monsters and darkness, my 4º ESO B students have been working on writing acrostics. An acrostic is a poem (or other form of writing) in which the first letter of each line spells out a word or a message. In this case, Halloween terms should be the spine of these poetic compositions. Playing with words is another way of discovering all the possibilities that a language offers.
At first sight ,the task seemed hard , even imposible for students . Step by step they left fear out and found the work fun and joyful.
We will show you some results:
My students of PMAR have been working very hard on the decorations of their classroom doors, showing a lot of imagination.
Thanks to my students for their collaboration.

FIRST YEAR OF BACHILLERATO
Bachillerato students have also participated in this celebration with varied projects made on posters. In them, it is shown all the information they have found on the Internet related to some of the most famous monsters and legends of all times.They have discovered terrifying creatures and spooky legends like The Mummy, Sleepy Hollow, The Werewolf , Jack’O’Lantern or The Errant Dutch ..
Frankestein has been the topic of other Bachillerato projects: its author (Mary Shelley), characters, main topics and historical background.
How Halloween is celebrated around the world is another topic that has motivated the students to search on the Internet and find, learn and share interesting information .
It has been an interesting and funny Halloween celebration. We wait for all of you the next year!!!
