Great Thanksgiving Day at Los Morales School!

El pasado jueves celebramos por tercer año consecutivo la festividad de Thanksgiving Day en nuestro colegio. Para ello, contamos con diversas actividades: exposición de manualidades realizadas por el alumnado de primer y segundo ciclo sobre símbolos tradicionales de esta fiesta, la representación teatral por parte de los alumnos y alumnas de tercero en inglés y la presentación de esta festividad mediante un power point realizado y conducido por nuestro auxiliar lingüístico Michael, que además nos aclaró las similitudes y diferencias de esta celebración en USA y Canadá, de donde él es originario.

Al día siguiente, es decir, el viernes, seguimos con las celebración pues recibimos la visita de los alumnos/as de tercero de los colegios Salvador Allende y Rectora Adeláida de la Calle, que conforman la microrred de centros bilingües Teatinos-Puerto de la Torre (BILITRAMS) y dentro del calendario de actividades compartidas que hemos establecido para este curso escolar. Sin lugar a dudas, la experiencia resultó un éxito y los alumnos/as de todos los centros vivieron una jornada inolvidable de convivencia.

¡Ya estamos deseando repetir la experiencia! Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Thanksgiving Day

In September 1620, a group of English people called the Pilgrim Fathers sailed from Plymouth, England across the Atlantic Ocean, in a ship called the Mayflower, to Cape Cod in North America. They went away from England because they did not agree with the religion in England. They wanted to make a new life in a new country.
They sailed for sixty-six dangerous days across the Atlantic Ocean. When they arrived, they called their new home New England, but they were not the first people to live there. The Wampanoag were the first people. Sometimes the Pilgrim Fathers fought with the Wampanoag, but they also learned a lot from them. The Wampanoag taught them to live from their new land, and to grow and cook new kinds of fruit and vegetables.
The first winter was difficult. Many of the Pilgrim Fathers died because it was very cold and they had little food. In the spring they started to grow food, with the help of some friendly Wampanoag, and in the autumn of 1621 they celebrated their first harvest. They gave thanks, not only for the harvest, but for their new home, new life and new friends.

Thanksgiving Day is the fourth Thursday in November. Canada is north of the USA, so the winter is longer and the harvest is earlier there. The date of Thanksgiving Day there is the second Monday in October. Most American and Canadian families still have a Thanksgiving Day dinner together. They have turkey and autumn vegetables, and then pumpkin pie.
In the USA, it is an important day for American football. Many people go to watch football or stay at home and watch it on television.

Halloween is an event that most children studying English are familiar with as it is often presented in their course books. However, do they know WHY we celebrate Halloween?
Ask your pupils:
When is Halloween? (answer: _____________________________________)
What do people do on Halloween? (answers: _________________________________________).

History of Halloween
There are many different ideas as to how Halloween celebrations started. A number of people believe that this tradition began thousands of years ago with the Celts. The Celtic people celebrated New Year’s Day on November 1st and, to protect themselves against the winter, they organised activities to scare off evil spirits the night of October 31st.
This is one version; however, some people believe that Halloween has a shorter history.

Why do people wear costumes for Halloween?
Wearing costumes for Halloween began hundreds of years ago. Many people believed that ghosts roamed the streets the night before All Saint’s Day so they wore masks and costumes to keep evil spirits away. In the past, aside from wearing masks, people used to also place bowls of food on their doorsteps to make sure ghosts and spirits didn’t enter in their houses.



Canciones y música para Halloween - Letra y Vídeo de la canción This is Halloween, BSO 'Nightmare before Christmas'

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It's our town, everybody screm
In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under yours stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

Round that corner, man hiding in the trash cam
Something's waiting no to pounce, and how you'll...

Scream! This is Halloween
Red 'n' black, slimy green

Aren't you scared?

Well, that's just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everbody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"
I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lumplings everywhere
Life's no fun without a good scare

That's our job, but we're not mean
In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don't we love it now?

Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everyone scream
Wont' ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la-la la, Halloween! Halloween! (x4)
