Hallowe'en Activities

Hallowe'en Activities

A fun-packed, jam-packed goodie bag of Tricks and Treats for primary aged children at Hallowe'en time. There's a detailed set of activities for drama games, an arty party and warm-up games with a spooky twist, involving music, mindfulness, concentration , role-play, and moments of calm. The activities can form sessions on their own, but can be cherry picked to be incorporated to stimulate or round-off similarly themed lessons. At the end of the document, there's a short but informative recommended book list, including notes on the origins of the folk stories we know today that are far more terrifying in their original forms than their Disneyified counterparts.

Character and Lifeskills Links and Videos in description

Endorsed by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the “world’s greatest living explorer”, our unique character education curriculum is designed to ensure every child reaches their full potential. Based on the lives of real-life adventurers and explorers, such as Sir Ranulph and Tim Peake, we have designed a complete package of lessons and online support that is ready to go in your school today and form part of your curriculum. Pupils learn about a different hero or heroine over each term, with practical and mental tasks to complete based on their adventures. Designed with educationalists, each lesson is structured to give pupils the character tools and values they need to be successful in life such as resilience, determination, empathy, and courage. Lessons are supported with “field report” films featuring Commando Joe, developed by a Bafta-winning animation company. Plus, a whole website of dedicated resources, support, celebration and reflection materials tools. Choose between enlisting one of our Commando Joe’s instructors to deliver the course in school, or our new school-led package with full training and support for your staff to deliver our character education curriculum themselves. Either way, we are confident that when it comes to Character Education, this is the best of the best.

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

The Witches' Spell - Teaching Pack of lessons and presentation

Here are the full set of lesson plans, presentations and printable resources that you'll need for sessions with EYFS, Key Stage 1 or 2 children and their teachers. These lessons introduce the famous 'Double, double, toil and trouble...' verses from the play, Macbeth, said by the witches as they create a spell and is a great way to bring children to the Bard for the first time. Children get to act out the spell and build their own verses, using key vocabulary, and rhythm and rhyme. There are also lessons on capacity, counting, sorting, music, and art. Differentiation is built into the sessions, and the lessons can be seen as a starting point for your own ideas. There is scope for further development into a longer term project, with potion making and hallowe'en activities etc. A follow-up to the drama and music work could be a musical scene based on the spell, which could become a longer more demanding drama and movement performance for an assembly or end of term production, depending on the ability of your pupils. Every lesson has clear aims and success criteria, a comprehensive list of resources, helpful key words and specially designed worksheets and/or presentations, which are all created to be adaptable for your settings and your classes. My aim to make something that is useful and usable for teachers, that is fun for everybody, while creating memorable educational experiences. I have used the extract here with 3 to 11 year olds many times, and it is always a guaranteed winner, becoming a firm favourite warm-up game for drama activities. To hear a FREE recording of the poem, please go to my website: http://emblabee.org/the-31-days-of-scary-day-1/
