How to make CHRISTMAS CRACKERS

How to make CHRISTMAS CRACKERS

These crackers can be made by young children as well as adults. I have made them with children as young as Year 5, no problem providing that each component is already measured and cut out for them. Adults: you may make these for the dinner table as you can choose a nice gift for the inside instead of silly items, you can make each gift suit the person and label the cracker up as a dinner seating arrangement. The cracker snaps can easily be ordered on line and by replacing them each year, these crackers become re-cycleable. Have fun...

It is an opportunity to work together as a team and enhance communication, motor skills, and social pragmatics with your students either as an ice breaker activity in school or family board game at home. The goal of the game is to move your pieces along the journey of the game board and reach the end. While in transient, you will encounter 4 different types of drawing cards. Each type represents a level of increasing difficulty. For each card, there will be a translator [player who describes the card to the drawer] and a transcriber [player who draws the shape]. Each card has a specially engineered shape that the transcriber will have to describe to the drawer. The Drawer will have a specific amount of time to draw that shape. After time expires, the transcriber will match that shape to the translator’s master card. If the shapes match, points will be earned and they will advance.

Snow White Activity Pack

Snow White Activity Pack

A detailed and wide range of activities based on the traditional version of Snow White. This is an overview of a unit of work, which can be used in conjunction with the story or a trip to the pantomime and is most suitable for children from EYFS to lower Key Stage 2, although the ideas may be cherry picked and developed for older pupils. Most of the activities are based in drama, art & technology and literacy, and there are opportunities for outdoor learning which encompass geography and design technology. Included in the pack are background notes on the history and changes to the text since it first appeared in print, suggested further reading and almost unnecessary references to Chris Hemsworth. I have included detailed notes on how I would approach telling the tale to a class as a oral tale - where I would have breaks for discussions and to create tension. More detailed lesson plans based on these ideas are now available to purchase. Please check them out!

Hansel and Gretel Primary School Activity Overview

Hansel and Gretel Primary School Activity Overview

Here is a great overview of lots of activities based on the full text of the tale of Hansel and Gretel from the collection made by the Grimm brothers. There is a full introduction to the text used, with a brief historical context to the setting. I have included an approach to how to introduce the text to children, either as a read story or a performed oral tale. Following that, there are extensive activities designed for warm-up games for concentration or drama, creative activities indoors or outdoors. at Forest School or similar. Tasks include: carving, cookery, puppetry, making and following pathways, fire safety, hot chocolate and bread, having a feast, drama, problem solving, art and design, science (light and dark), poetry and understanding texts. I have included a recommended background reading for teachers interested in the history of the Grimms Tales and the more rewarding versions of the stories than the norm. Most of the activities are suitable for EYFS or Key Stage 1, but Lower Key Stage 2 would probably benefit from them too.
