Halloween resources

Posted by:

Halloween is nearly upon us and below are links to some recommended on-line resources that can be incorporated into the curriculum based on that theme.

Primary Games has a set of Halloween games where you can watch Nigel Marven videos about bats and creepy-crawlies. Celebrate Halloween by sending a spooky, musical postcard to someone you know or spice up your website or blog with their free Halloween widgets.

There is background information and a little history about Halloween at Kiddy House Halloween Activities and a whole set of Halloween links at the Primary Games website.

This Interactive halloween story from DigitalPlay comes with a lesson plan and challenges pupils to make decisions to guide a young girl through a wood before it gets dark. It is suitable for younger pupils and can be used as a class activity on an interactive whiteboard.

Pirates of the Undead Sea is great for year 5 and 6 to develop story writing on a Halloween theme … click here for ideas about how to use this game.

Another good Halloween game for writing instructions is Newly Departed which is freely downloadable. Pupils can be shown how to start and then asked to write instructions as they find out what to do. The website contains lots of ideas and a walkthrough for teachers to view.

Mr Printable offers mask templates

Finally, primary treasure chest has some excellent Halloween resources.
