  The season is upon us! No sooner had you finished off the fireworks poems, than A Christmas Carol has tumbled out of the cupboard and you’ve been asked to get out the tinsel again. To get you in the mood, here are some of our festive favourites.

Have a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas cheer in your classroom

 
   
This year our popular interactive Christmas advent calendar for English-themed activities has been unlocked for everyone to enjoy throughout December. What’s more, there’s an extra Christmas treat for subscribers: our Tutor time advent calendar. It saves on fighting over the chocolates!

For end-of-term fun and fillers for disrupted lessons, head to our selection of Christmas resources, full of meaningful English lesson ideas for poetry, persuasion and those very important letters.

Are you teaching A Christmas Carol? Our comprehensive teaching pack has received lots of praise for its exam preparation content, or choose from a selection of resources on the site. The PDFs are free to all.

 
 
 
Illustrated Christmas resources

 
 
     
 
 
     
Our set of five Christmas resources offers more purpose than a word search or a DVD, and comprises a range of writing tasks for your KS3 students. This includes activities for students to describe Christmas memories, review a Christmas dinner and (Bah! Humbug!) write persuasively against Christmas consumerism.

The resource set is free for Teachit English subscribers and key contributors and just £5 for free members.
