There are so many KS2 Christmas Maths activities available on Emaths, it was difficult to choose just one! Our favourite has to be the 4 x Christmas Maths colouring activities that incorporate addition, subtraction and multiplication. Perfect for struggling lower KS2 pupils, once completed, your pupils end up with a lovely, coloured image that’s perfect to take home to Mum and Dad. Take a look at our Christmas Maths Calculation Colouring Worksheet.

Teachers are well renowned for their selfless and caring attitudes but they sometimes forget the importance of their own mental health. We know self-care is always important but as Christmas can be a stressful time for many reasons, now might be a good time to reflect on how you are feeling and what you can do for your own wellbeing.
This tool from Public Health England asks you to complete a short quiz about your wellbeing before suggesting 6 self-care ideas that you could put into action. Make sure to take time for yourself in the lead up to Christmas and during the holidays.

Mr Barton Maths is probably already on your must read list, but the Maths Christmas Activities and Resources section is a particular lifesaver during this point in the year. The section includes top Maths Christmas resources from the TES Maths website (secondary as well as primary).
Our top pick from Mr Barton’s selection is the Christmas Maths murder mystery , guaranteed to be a crowdpleaser. Pupils are given a set of clue cards which define the task – of finding out who killed Santa – and give them all the necessary information to solve the mystery. This is a tricky but entertaining Christmas maths activity to encourage problem solving skills, and it is best suited to upper KS2.

We couldn’t resist including this one, even if we’ve used it before…
Whether you’re taking the DfE’s advice to ‘hold a live nativity performance’ or not, you’ll find something to laugh at (and cry at after the year we’ve had!) here.
Mr P understands and his video shares the struggles we’ve all experienced when putting on a show .
Remember that Christmas carol you loved before you agreed to organise your school’s nativity? Not anymore after rehearsing it for the thousandth time.
What about props falling midway through? You can handle a Christmas tree tumbling down as long as you’re prepared for it and have accepted it.
Be prepared for the technology to go wrong, half of your cast to be off sick and your Christmas play production to be one of your proudest moments this year.
If you like classroom laughs and learning about technology and you don’t already follow ICT with Mr P on Facebook you’re missing a trick.
