To understand how people celebrate Christmas in the UK

In this set of lessons, we learn about Christmas traditions. In this lesson with Miss Hughes, we think of different traditions from the UK and where they have come from. We end the lesson by designing and writing a Christmas card, thinking carefully about who we will send it to and why. You can extend this lesson by comparing UK traditions to other traditions around the world. Remember, if you are using the internet to do this, your parent or carer must be present.
