If your school strictly follows the ‘no films until the last day’ rule, you may be scrabbling around for a bit of festive fun that still has a clear learning focus!

Our brand new Christmas fun PowerPoint contains five games to play with your classes which would work well with KS3 and KS4 (and perhaps even with a less cynical A-level group who want to wind down!).

Take a quick look at our other Christmas life-savers – including a lovely Harry Potter Christmas resource that would fill a lesson and a great 'one off' activity to create a Christmas poem.

Have a good break everyone; here’s hoping you find some space and peace away from your marking over the Christmas period.

The best Christmas day ever

A series of questions based on a description of a Christmas lunch from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, exploring language and structure in detail and including a creative writing task. This would work as a stand-alone lesson - you don't need to be reading Harry Potter with your class.
