Sugar Skulls


On Thursday, the whole year level of 5/6 were drawing and creating their own sugar skulls. A sugar skull is a plain skull that is painted with bright vibrant colours, that are supposed to celebrate the day of the dead. This is the day when the people of Mexico celebrate the people they have lost but instead of thinking of it in a sad way, they celebrate that they have lived. The Day of the Dead is celebrated on the 31st of October.
