Now hosted by NAACE, I particularly like the first two resources on this site that present “Santa Sorting” activities based around the ICT topic of databases.

The Children’s Society have produced a free (UK only) collection of family activity ideas for the Christmas period. It’s a really sweet collection hints, tips and stories that should give you plenty to do with your own children over the holidays and there are also a few activities that you could adapt for classroom use.

If you’ve got young children then it is well worth filling in an online request for the booklet. I sent off for one them myself after seeing an advert running for it on the main Primary Resources website (of all places!)

I mentioned this site in the blog last year but I thought it was worth flagging it up again as it’s almost December 1st once again. Woodlands Junior School‘s online advent calendar features lots of really interesting information about Christmas customs around the world. There’s links to loads of other useful seasonal resources on the page as well.
