To look at how Christmas celebrations have changed over time

In this lesson, we join Mrs Garrard to explore how Christmas traditions have altered over time. We will compare how Christmas trees were decorated in the past and in present times. Finally, we will create our very own gingerbread tree decoration. You can extend this lesson by talking to family members about how your family Christmas traditions have changed over time.
