All Hallows Eve

A custom people were fond of doing was to leave nine ivy leaves under a girl’s pillow at night and she was to say the following words, “Those nine ivy leaves I place under my head to dream of the living and not the dead …” (Tunagh, Galway). We had a great Halloween party on Friday the 3rd.


We used powerful adjectives to describe the lovely tree outside our classroom window. Here are some of the descriptive words the Year 3s used: beautiful, soft, breezy, colourful, happy and panoramic. Mila said the tree reminded her of delicious strawberries and for Mark the tree is a symbol of snowy China.
