Spellzone October Round-Up 2020

Happy Halloween to all our subscribers! 

This month we’ve been looking at all things spooky and scary in our Word for Wednesday blog posts. Have you ever seen a ghost? How about a were-hyena? Where does the word vampire come from? Who was Victor Frankenstein?

We also stayed on theme in our 10 Words blog post where we shared alternatives for the word scary. Whether your Halloween plans are alarming, chilling, or eerie, we’ve got the right word for you.

Maybe it’s because we’ve got handwashing on the brain, but this month we decided to base our Idioms blog post on hands. From lending a hand to having your hands tied, there are plenty of idioms to learn in this list

Have you had a chance to play our Spooky Spelling and Autumn Anagrams games yet? Find out more about them here

And finally, if you haven’t yet had enough of Halloween, here are some of our favourite spooky blog posts from the archives:
