The Christmas Advert for British department store John Lewis is highly anticipated every year as it is usually imaginative and can be used for activities in the classroom during the seasonal period.
This tutorial video shows how to create a simple, yet effective 3D Christmas Tree using only paper/card, glue and some sparkly bits. This could be easily be done by pupils of all different ages.
I saw this website recommended online for some new Advent and Christmas songs. There are four new seasonal songs on this page. They come with words, sheet music, guitar chords or a Powerpoint with the songs words. Videos also accompany each of the songs. All of the material is available to download for free.

Doing something like this with the whole class/school promotes inclusion and allows all pupils to learn some Lámh […]

They probably do need lots of adult supervision as they are quite fiddly and it’s very easy to make a mistake. However, the finished product is really impressive and they look great for decorating the classroom during the seasonal […]
Mog’s Christmas Calamity is the 2015 advert from the UK-based supermarket chain Sainsburys. It is based around the popular fictional cat Mog, created by the children’s author Judith Kerr. With Christmas carefully planned in the Thomas household, Mog sets off a chain of events which lead to catastrophe.
As it’s quite fiddly, this would be a visual arts lesson suitable for older pupils. It requires lots of folding, measuring and cutting skills – however, the end result would adorn any seasonal classroom.
Definitely one for older pupils, but this would make a great visual arts lesson – creating a cool Christmas Tree using only one sheet of green A4 card.
