Language Department Celebrate El Dia De Los Muertos

9th November 21

MFL Day of the Dead

In Modern Foreign Languages, students have been learning about the cultural aspects of Dia de los Muertos, a tradition from Latin America (Mexico) which happens every year on the 1st and 2nd of November. In Year 9 & 10 they have researched and reproduced how people celebrate their dead by building an altar, bringing them flowers, fruit, candles and skulls. Year 6 students made masks, Year 7 sang along to ‘En Mexico’ and students from different year groups watched the film ‘Coco’.

Y9s baked and decorated cupcakes and biscuits; and teachers volunteered to have their faces painted in traditional sugar skull make-up.
