Trick or treat,
Bags of sweets,
Ghosts are walking down the street.
On Wednesday 30th October, the Primary School of THIS celebrated the spooky and exciting event that the kids look forward to every year—Halloween! Students brought their own unique Halloween costumes and teachers delighted in these ghouls and goblins with six spook-tacular Halloween games that promoted skills and knowledge.
Students created skeletons using Q-Tips, glue and a black piece of paper.
Using markers, stickers and other objects, the students decorated their own little pumpkin.
The students were separated into 3 teams. Each team had 3 minutes to wrap one of their teammates with toilet paper.
Slime is the one of the kids’ favorites. Students decorated their own slime with Halloween elements such as eyeballs and skulls.
Like pin the donkey but students placed the eyes, mouth and nose on a big pumpkin cut-out.
Grab a drink and snacks, it is time for Halloween party.
万圣节最激动人心的环节当属变装游行。孩子们穿戴好精心准备的服装道具，在老师的带领下在教学楼内开始盛装游行。Trick or treat？老师和高年级的同学们为小朋友精心准备好糖果，分享节日的喜悦。热爱生活，单纯快乐，童心不会随时光长大。
The most exciting part of Halloween is the parade. THIS teachers led the "little devils" who dressed themselves in creative costumes through the school from the 1st floor to the 4th floor. Trick or treat? The secondary students prepared candies for the primary kids and shared the joy of the Halloween.
Jeremy Scaramuzzi is the 5th grade homeroom teacher and is also one of the planners of this year’s Halloween activities. He said that: “Each month we meet in our Spartan families and we do different activities. For the month of October, we always traditionally done a Halloween party. We are looking for the kids to have a fun time and the activities are planned for the kids that involves collaboration and interaction. The core values of collaboration, discovery, engagement and Tsinghua Spirit are intertwined in our activities. To have fun, to be together as Spartan Family, to celebrate the fact that we are together as a community and to represent the core values of THIS are the purposes of these activities.”
Besides the Halloween games, teachers also planned in-class activities that were suitable for kids in different grade. “Depending on the grade, I know some teachers designed coloring activity, others did ghost stories. And there were teachers who also told the history of Halloween to give students some background information about this holiday.”
Learn in games and grow in happiness. The wonderful moments should be a life-long memory; the students and teachers exhilarated by fun games and frightening fellowship. Night fell, ghosts went home. They are already looking forward to next Halloween.
