I was wondering if you have any activities that you might suggest?  Also any and all resources would be highly appreciated for information (wikipedia is my best friend!).

Another idea would be arranging a Hallowe'en dress up party with "spooky" food, you could do the apple bobbing at this.  You can dye fruit juices with food dye to make them black or purple for example.  There are some Hallowe'en recipes here and if you can't do baking in class you could always do some of it at home and take it in to be finished by the children perhaps?  I don't know how it works in your classes, or what facilities you have there though.

You could do the same for Christmas, as most schools here have a Christmas Dinner day and a Christmas party day before breaking up for the holidays.  I once made a snow palace for a party.  I built walls and turrets using mini marshmallows for bricks, sticking them together with icing.  I supported the inside of the walls with those wafers you get for ice-cream.  I used ice-cream cones for the rooves of the turrets and wafers and licorice laces for the draw bridge.  I then drizzled runny icing over the turrets to look like snow, and dusted the inside and around it with icing powder.  To make it useful and a little more healthy it was then filled with fruits and nuts like a bowl.  This would be pretty easy for kids to make, and gives you great sticky fingers! Grin

Ooh, and you can make Christmas crackers too, I used to love this in school.
