It’s never too early to plan for Christmas, or any other celebration or event. I would suggest going through the scheme of work and moving it around to allow for topics that lend themselves to certain activities are at a time when they can be linked with particular times of year.

Nets are a great way to explore shapes and make Christmas decorations. Print of the 3D shapes, decorate them and then make them!

The Great Elf Game is a fun activity and it’s proved popular with a wide age range. Have a look at the videos. It seems a bit tricky at first and we played it together from the front of the classroom until students got the hang of it.

Wrapping Presents Not quite a way to get your gifts wrapped for you but rather a way to play with surface area. Cheap wrapping paper (or even newspapers) can wrap around shapes and this is just a way to play with surface area.

The great NRICH site has a puzzle for each day which is worth exploring.

Suffolk Maths has a range of activities to explore as well.

Transum has starter activities on the theme of Christmas and Mr Barton has collected a range of his suggestions to keep learning happening through to the end of term.
