English Cineforum - Peter Pan

Class I D

Last month we saw the movie "Peter Pan" based on the novel of J. M. Barrie. 
It was amazing because in the film there is action but also love and friendship.

Here we are!

Halloween in our classroom!

Class I D

Halloween is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31st . 
It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints. The term derives from “All Hallows Eve” that means “eve of All Saints’ Day”.
Halloween was a pagan festival, people thought that the living and the dead, came in contact on that night. Like most pagan festivals, long ago it was absorbed into the festivals of the expanding Christian church, and became associated with All Hallows Day, or All Saints Day, which fell on November 1st. The celebration of Halloween survived most strongly in Ireland. It was the end of summer festival, and was often celebrated in each community with a bonfire to ward off the evil spirits. Children would go from door to door in disguise as creatures from the underworld to collect treats, mainly fruit or nuts.  
Carving turnips as ghoulish faces to hold candles became a popular part of the festival, which has been adapted to carving pumpkins in America. Nowadays this festival is celebrated in many western countries.

This year we celebrated Halloween learning some rhymes, making some masks... and Francesco even made a beautiful Jack-o'-lantern!! Thank you, Francesco!
