Last week students in the Middle School Libraries were treated to a week of lunch time activities exploring the popular Horror genre. The scarefest began with a delicious Monster Pops activity which saw the boys creating some frightening creatures out of marshmallows covered in chocolate and decorated with all kinds of lollies. Judging by the smiling chocolate covered faces, those that signed up for this activity had a lot of fun! On Tuesday there was a nail biting Kahoot which stumped a few students with questions relating to horror themed books, movies and music.
The excitement continued on Wednesday as students competed in a range of games like mummy bowling, skull toss and spooky bingo. Other activities throughout the week included a viewing of the very funny and slightly scary Goosebumps film, a sensory bat slime activity and a challenge to make your own dancing ghost. During the week students in Years 7 and 8 also volunteered to make their own horror trailer based on a real or fake book or movie of their choosing using either their computer or a library iPad. On Friday these trailers were screened in the Centenary Library at lunch to a captivated audience and a winner for ‘best trailer’ was crowned. Thank you to all who participated, it was wonderful to see the libraries filled with such enthusiasm and excitement and to see the books from the horror display flying off the shelves as students immersed themselves into the genre.
