Things Teachers Know About Christmas

You’ll know all too well how excited students (and teachers!) get about Christmas. It’s a brilliant occasion to get creative with some festive crafts, eat lots of yummy treats like mince pies and also to have a well-deserved break.

Things Teachers Know About Christmas

So, as we’re on the topic of Christmas, we thought we’d share a few ‘festive classroom moments’ we’re sure you’ll be able to relate to at this time of year…

It’s DVD Time!

There are so many wonderful festive movies to get you and your class into the Christmas spirit and nothing beats an afternoon watching popular ones like The Nativity and Elf (which you probably know word for word now)!

The hard part is deciding what to watch first, especially if your students have different ideas and don’t all want to watch the same thing!


It’s lovely to have a lesson of making lots of Christmas-inspired crafts, like wonderful paper snowflakes or festive angels.

Until afterwards… the leftover glue smeared over the table, the glitter and sequins sprinkled everywhere and let’s not forget the beads, which have somehow ended up all over the carpet!

It's All About the Nativity

It’s always a tricky situation when you’ve announced who will play who in the school play, to find out other students had their hearts set on a particular role.

You may find yourself reassuring your students that singing in the play is also a very important role and it’s not only the student who plays Joseph who has a talking part, the Three Wise Men have important lines to read too!

It's Snowing?

When it snows outside, it may cause a little chaos in the classroom, as students rush to the windows to see white flakes falling from the sky and onto the playground. To be honest, we love a bit of snow and get a little excited when we see it too, so it’s definitely not just the children…

Can you relate to any of these moments or have any more you'd like to share with us? Get in touch at @EducationCity and let us know what you think!
