The students had a surprize waiting for them as they walked into our classroom on Friday morning...lanterns and spiders hung from the ceiling....thanks to some mums, there was magic in the air. Inspired by what they saw, the girls in our class decided to give the boys a surprize! They spent part of lunch break carefully strewing red shredded paper on the floor, turned some chairs upside down and hid behind the fridge and waited for the boys to return from playing soccer, and sprung the biggest surprize on them!
Apart from the tricks, we also wrote some poetry inspired by halloween. Read and enjoy!
Halloween seen from the perspective of an Adult
Halloween is seriously annoying.
children knock on my door
They say “trick or treats”
I give them candy and toffee
Children think it’s fun
they wear crazy costumes like witches
some of them say
These are the ones who cover their heads
They think they are ghosts
but I say they are just silly
I wish they would notice that.
They eat too much candy.
they eat too much toffee
They get stomachaches next morning
Halloween is heaven to children
Halloween is hell to adults!!

Today is Halloween
the naughty children play outside.
The scary“ghost” are singing,
The wacky“witch” is laughing,
The big “monster” is walking,
The children are saying,
Trick or treat…
The Halloween night is scary,
But we love it!

Blanket cushions and loads more having fun on the floor
After a while its such a bore i do not want to play this anymore
Chatting and talking we think about what to do
EWW look at that piece of poo!!
Naughty naughty cat we have your such a big fat brat
Anyways forget all that are you serious now theres a rat.
Go away you filthy peasant this is not at all pleasant
Now lets go to the pool oh my gosh its so cool
We play with toys and talk about boys
We talk all day chat all night
Then watch a scary horror movie and get a fright
We saw some creepy scary dolls
That were found in our bathroom stalls
Bye bye now I'm leaving for my home
I am going to finally see my brother Jerome
Sara's blog post:
Areas I have improved on in Grade 5
In Grade 5 I have improved on subjects in Literacy and Math.
In maths I didn’t only improve I also learnt really much!
I definitely improved on fractions, long division and double digit multiplication. I learnt how to do, Multiplying fractions using models. That is when you say, Sara had 48 raspberries she gave ¼ to Panashe and ⅙ to Maya. We used models to solve these problems.
In Literacy I have improved a lot. I have improved on poems (definitely), presenting, spelling and speaking. Now I know how to write poems with, Onomatopoeia, Metaphors, Similes and Alliteration. My favorite poems that I wrote are Charlie Chopper and Lovely Christmas.
