Christmas and New Year's Activities for tutor time!

Come November and December, it can be a tough time to keep students (and yourself!) motivated in the run up to the holiday season. If you want some fun and quality Christmas and New Year activities to use with your tutor groups that they will enjoy and relate to, then this is the resource for you! It comes with attractive, enjoyable and creative activities that will last weeks running up to the Christmas holidays and even when they return in the New Year too!

This resource will encourage students to look at Christmas over the world, show kindness, reflect on the end of one year and start of another.
These can be used for a variety of age groups and abilities and require no preparation from you at all. Instructions are on each worksheet and students can be as thorough as they like depending on their ability.

These are fun to do and they make wonderful keepsakes for students to look back on when they are older!

Pointless Christmas 2014 Edition

I've created a new edition of my Pointless game for this Christmas. This new version allows you to play it the same way as the TV show does, or a bespoke version where you play as many games in each round as you like. I&'ve included instructions for how to operate the slides and all the answers/bits to read out to explain what is required in each game. Hope you enjoy. There may be a few bugs given I&';ve not used it myself and there are about 350 slides and thousands of links required to make it all work, so please message me if you spot any problems and I'll fix them.
