FAO: Any stressed teachers coping with Christmas enthusiasm

Christmas is coming – but don’t panic!

Are your children more interested in Santa and presents than subtraction and proverbs?

You’ve managed to fit rehearsals for the nativity play around your phonic sessions. You can do all the actions to the Christmas songs in your sleep. You’ve even managed to order presents for the in-laws online – then your head teacher says brightly, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if each class took responsibility for decorating one of the display boards around the school? Oh, and don’t forget your Pupil Progress Meeting tomorrow.’ Arggggh!

Don’t panic! Our authors are teachers, so we know what you are going through.

What you need to keep children’s learning on track are high quality resources that are easy to use, consolidate and reinforce the skills you have been teaching, and which children will find enjoyable.

All the photocopiable worksheets in these books have a Christmas-y theme, to inspire children and make it easier for them to focus their attention on schoolwork. Each sheet has a specific skills focus, so you can be sure that your pupils will be engaging in meaningful activities over the next few weeks.

Your pupils will have no problem focusing to write a job description for Santa’s workshop, or making sure the elves don’t stack too many parcels on the sleigh for the reindeer to pull.

Even better, our Christmas books are available as e-books so you can download them from our website and start using them straight away.

So, inspire your pupils to create especially good work with this bank of fun, stimulating ideas and activities and you can all enjoy the run-up to Christmas!

Try some activities for free – there are sample pages to download on our website. Just search on Christmas.
