Day of the Dead

Class 4 have begun their summer design technology project designing a mask to celebrate the Mexican festival 'Day of the Dead'. In the towns and cities in Mexico people dress and parade in bright, colourful costumes and make up, making offerings to lost loved ones. Day of the Dead is a celebration of life and death.

The children researched the patterns and colours used to decorate the sugar skulls and used these to create designs of their own. Watch this space to see how their masks progress...
