Love the resources

Wow. Superb resources, well done! A lot of work has gone in to creating these unique resources. Much appreciated, I know my 2nd class will love them.

Good resource but one suggestion

I love this resource as I do all the packs. However, I was a bit disappointed that you don't have a PPT with the history of Christmas and its traditions. You only have the nativity story. In your other event packs you cover the history and traditions really well. The Christmas around the world cards are good. Would it be possible to include a PPT in your pack with specific information as to the origins of Christmas and why it is celebrated on December 25. The history is quite fascinating. Thank you for all you do. Many of your packs have sparked great debates and wonderful teaching moments.

Thanks for your lovely review, Karen. We are putting together a new Christmas Guide PowerPoint, and it should be available in the next few days.

Love the variety and the fact I have a very mixed ability class, it fits across them all. Thank you

An literal lifesaver

This pack, along with the Christmas Maths Pack has been a lifesaver for me this week. I am a 1:1 tutor teaching across the primary age range and the amazing resources have helped me out. They are differentiated, original, appealing and have captured the imagination of the wonderful children I teach. I particularly like the Christmas writing activities as they have been very useful in encouraging my reluctant writers. Thank you so much!

Fanastic resource

Fantastic pack

This pack is fantastic.
It included a wide range of activities that would suit quite a large age range.
I home educate my 4 children and this pack kept us busy for most of December.
Well done!

Christmas Fun

A great and fun filled pack for Christmas. We home educate and really enjoyed using these resources and activities. How Xmas is celebrated differently around the world is interesting for children to learn. The crafts were the most used and we would enjoy more resources of this type.
