EDIT: Added a Y1 version with space to write.\nCould not find a version of this anywhere with the 5 candles, so put this together in word! It is actually intended to be cut out and mounted for diplay, so is intentionally simple - but with a bit of tweaking it could be made into more of a worksheet e.g. Chn could add labels to describe the features (evergreen, circle shape, each candle for a different Sunday in Advent, pink for the3rd Sunday etc).
It's always nice to give your students something Christmassy to work towards as it gets closer. I've updated this resource due to it's popularity. This 10 page booklet can be printed in colour or black and white. Students can work through the different activities suggested in one go or once a week. I've used these resources with different ages but it would work best for lower secondary or primary school. The resources tell the Christmas story, look into traditions today and explore how Christmas was celebrated in the Tudor and Medieval period. The additional Powerpoint may also be used for other activites. Comments are appreciated. Images acquired through a search engine filtered to "labelled for reuse".
This lesson uses drama to encourage students to explore a range of creation stories from across the globe. They are also encouraged to reflect on whether or not these stories can be useful for learning about other cultures. <br />
