What’s included:

Looking for Halloween teaching resources or themed activities? In need of Halloween craft ideas or Halloween word games? Fire up your pupils’ imaginations and make the spookiest time of year both meaningful and enjoyable for your KS2 pupils. Our 44 page activity pack of fun activities is filled with Halloween-themed maths, English and science worksheets and resources. Inside, you’ll find:

  • Lesson objectives, teaching notes and further challenge ideas to ensure meaningful learning and appeal to any ghost or ghoul fans in KS2.

  • A dictionary challenge exercise, Halloween colouring pages (in the form of colour by calculation) and a spooky disco poster competition - all great Halloween fun for lower key stage 2.

  • Halloween writing prompts to support instruction, list or letter writing - suitable across all of key stage 2.

And for upper key stage 2:

  • Halloween fractions, data and worded problems activity sheets

  • A haunted house cut out and make mini-project (incorporating English, maths, DT and art)

  • Halloween rhyming words poetry worksheet

  • Top it all off with a mini-science project for year 6 and get your pupils to make non-toxic, glow-in-the-dark slime! 

How to use our printable Halloween pack:

Use our Halloween activity pack as a starting point for all your KS2 Halloween-themed lessons. You can either pick out individual worksheets for particular classes or if you have the time and the inclination, you could go further and incorporate them into your maths, English and science lessons in the build-up to October 31st.

Where suitable (and for the DIY projects), we’ve included lists of Halloween materials for teaching these successfully.

The project work also adapts well for after-school clubs or homework. You could even run a competition for the best-haunted house or pot of Halloween slime! (Rewards in the form of a Halloween party bag/treat bag plus Halloween stickers?!)

Or, for anybody with the freedom to go off-timetable and for those of you who are home-schooling, why not use this as a lead-in to a Halloween party or to get children in the mood for trick or treating?

With the learning side of things covered, all you’ll need to think about are the Halloween costume ideas, pumpkin carving, scavenger hunt and Halloween games(!)

Note: a couple of resources included in this teaching pack can also be found in our topical Halloween area. However, these have been adapted for this pack, with teaching notes and learning objectives added.

We'd also like to thank colleagues at TeacherVision.com for allowing us to re-use their original content.
