A family is shown preparing food for a baptism celebration with the narration provided by the baby's older brother.

Crosswords can be a useful tool and more learning orientated than the dreaded wordsearch! They use thinking skills. Use for:<br />
A research task.<br />
To precede an open task/question.<br />
A baseline activity to see how much children already know so that you can differentiate and show progress.<br />
A plenary activity to see how much children know after a period of learning.<br />
Revision: either to revise the whole topic or to see where gaps in knowledge are so that revision can focus on the gaps only.<br />

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".
