Christmas - the birth of Jesus

Resources for early, first and second level to help you explore the Christmas story as you play and learn together. 

These Christmas learning resources can be used:

To help your pupils go beyond knowing this story as a nativity play and to begin to understand the Christian beliefs discovered in it. By exploring the characters and events in the account of the birth of Jesus they will develop an understanding of Christian beliefs.
To explore the theme of ‘trust’. Who trusts who in the story? Who do we trust? Why do trust them?
Outdoors! Exploring the story outside is fun. Even in the snow! Many of our learning activities are designed for outdoor learning.

Our introduction will help you understand the resources and plan your sessions. It’s also full of ideas to extend the learning across the curriculum. Download it here.

The birth of Jesus reveals key Christian beliefs. Read the 'Christmas Explained' document to help you understand these and explain them to your class. This is included as part of the additional resources.
