Christmas is coming!

7th December 2020

We have some fantastic festive-themed resources for your younger learners in the Christmas section on LearningGrids, I have highlighted a few of my favourite sets below.

In the lead up to Christmas, encourage children to use our Christmas Card Message Connect Set to create card inserts or festive letters. The set offers phrases, words and images that can be used to send a warm message to neighbours, family and friends at this special time of year.


Our Christmas Baubles - Make a Book lets children use the painting tools to complete the book. To get started, select edit view, select the image and then the paintbrush in the top toolbar. The bauble will open in a new window for children to creatively paint the bauble to match the sentence on the page. Children will love reading the colourful book they created! We also have a Christmas Baubles Connect Set that focuses on the bauble colours theme and reinforces the use of commas when writing lists.


We have a story about a group of children preparing for Christmas in the Getting Ready for Christmas - Read a Book. Use the many related sets to encourage children to practise their memory skills and sentence writing.


For more independent writers, use our Christmas and Christmas A – Z Word Banks. They provide key vocabulary about decorations, traditions, food and Father Christmas. These would be brilliant resources for supporting diary writing in the lead up to the special day or writing about how families celebrate Christmas.

We have many Christmas counting sets to reinforce the skills of recognising, counting, reading and writing numbers to ten. Search for Christmas Counting to find differentiated talk, matching, reading and writing resources.


Explore the Christmas section in our Collections category for even more related resources. We wish you lots of festive fun while learning with our resources!
