The following spooky online games are ready to be adopted for Halloween week ,or sent for homework during those few days.

Spooky Spellings – Practise spelling common exception words. (Ages 5 and up)

This game uses the words listed in the UK National Curriculum as being ‘Common Exception Words’ i.e. tricky words.

Choose an age band, then a book and a set of words will appear. Drag the right letters into the space where the word appears and check them. If right, the bats flutter down and takes the letters back ready for the next word.

Math Playground has a whole set of Halloween maths games and logic puzzles. There are some paid for and some flash so not all are free and useable but many are good to use.

Interactive Online Halloween Games – many are just for fun but there are crosswords and word searches, an escape room, jigsaw and loads more.
