Happy Friday folks! It’s getting close to the big day now, Christmas Day is almost upon us. And for a lot of you now, that means your classroom will begin to wind down (and all the kids will be in Christmas mode, I know I would have been). We’ll soon be heading for our Christmas break in the office, but before that, we’re still producing some fun and wonderful resources for you to use in your classroom before you break up for the holidays.

  • Our BRAND NEW Wellbeing Scheme is on the way, find out more this Sunday…

INTRODUCING – Superworm Resources!

It wouldn’t be Christmas without something Julia Donaldson related appearing on the tele, and this year is no different. And it’s even more of a treat, because we’re getting a BRAND NEW half-hour animated film based on the 2012 book Superworm, adapted by the BBC! The story of the Superworm is that of an unlikely hero, he’s always on hand to help out other animals in need. But the wicked Wizard Lizard has other plans for Superworm and has him kidnapped! Realising he has been kidnapped, the other creatures hatch a plan to save their beloved hero.

Hearing the news that Superworm was getting an animated adaptation, the team quickly got to work in producing some AMAZING new resources for you to use in your classroom before the Christmas break and beyond!

Get Creative With Our Colour Your Own Christmas Stocking Activity

The PERFECT activity for your class in the run up to Christmas. Children can even design 2 stockings, stick them together and have their own, functional stocking!

It’s Time to Fill Your Bookshelf With This Latest Book Review

The Christmas Miracle of Jonathan Toomey by Susan Wojciechowski is a fantastic story which is both deeply moving and incredibly uplifting. It is a classic Christmas story which is less well known in the UK, but definitely deserves to be read by everyone at this time of year. 

The book is about a gloomy woodcarver who receives a visit, one winter’s day, from a widow and her young son. They commission him to make a nativity scene and visit regularly as he works on it. Over time, a miracle occurs to warm Mr.Toomey’s cold heart. 

The story is beautifully written and accompanied by exquisitely painted illustrations. You will find yourself completely captivated from start to finish and the book will no doubt become one of your Christmas traditions for years to come.

A brilliant book for KS2, full of depth and plenty of learning opportunities. Also, an equally good book to share with KS1. A book that should be on everyone’s bookshelf at Christmas time.
