- For creative writing, Noreen Bashir has put together a useful vocabulary selection for creepy stories. You can also watch a Teachers TV video for a spooky literacy idea - a ghostly figure in an underground lair. Louisa28 has produced a lesson plan that shows how to use complex sentences and other authorial styles when starting a story.


- Get young pupils engaged with famous rulers from ancient times with the TESiboard Kings, Queens and Rulers collection. There's a mock website and interactive games.


- Treat your maths class to some chocolate! Year 4 and 5 (P4-5) lesson plans from J.M.Powell take pupils step by step through an investigation of the proportions of colours in packs of Smarties, with extension ideas for more able children. Pupils record numbers using tally sheets and frequency tables, then create a pictogram.
