The cycle three students at Pope Memorial Elementary School in Bury were hard at work last week preparing a Halloween spooktacular event for the rest of the students. The annual tradition at Pope was for cycle three students to create a haunted house in their classroom, giving a spooky tour to the rest of the school. Unfortunately due to Covid sanitary measures, that was unable to happen this year, so the students got creative and planned a haunted walk outside in the new outdoor classroom!
The students spent lunch hours and some class time in the days leading up to the school’s Halloween celebration planning roles, creating backgrounds and making tombstones to decorate their haunted house. On Friday afternoon, they got dressed up and took the rest of the school on rotating tours as they acted out their characters. Students were treated to a walk through a haunted graveyard, a witches’ forest and a telling of The Legend of Pope Memorial.
