Thanks to Ms McDonnell for the following report from class 1C.
As part of our lifeskills class we carved jacko lanterns. As a class we researched the history of the Jack O'Lantern. We then used the 2 classes before our double to prepare for our pumpkin carving. Using our IT skills we researched the various different patterns that we were carving onto our pumpkins. The students printed out the patterns and we practiced drawing them into their lifeskills copy. Then in our double classes, with the help of myself, Ms Mac Hale and the SNAs Valerie and Marie, we carved out pumpkins. We drew our patterns on the pumpkins. We used carving tools to create the finished product and tea lights to light our pumpkins.
