Have some festive fun exploring and creating Christmas poetry with your primary pupils

As we enter December, teachers often start to think about how learning can be themed around Christmas and what work their class can produce for wonderful winter displays. Writing some Christmas poetry is a great way to teach primary classes about the festive season, whilst also producing beautiful written work to be proud of. With that in mind, we’ve brought together a hand-picked collection of lessons and activities to help you during this busy period.
