Festive Classroom Displays

Who doesn’t love the festive season? Whether you and your pupils celebrate Christmas or not, it’s a great time to cosy up and enjoy the beauty of winter.

It’s no secret that pupils become excited before the Christmas holiday break, and there isn’t much use in fighting it! You can bring some of that festive cheer into your classroom with wintery or Christmas classroom displays.

Here are some of our favourites to get you inspired to spruce up your classroom this holiday season. (Top tip: Letting your pupils help you create these displays will take out some of the work for you, and will keep them busy and creative during this excitable time.)

1. A great way to celebrate the diversity and unique qualities of the pupils in your class

An easy and fun creative project. You can use scrap or recycled paper to make this a green exercise too!

2. A fantastic display to remind your pupils how special they are

This tree is surrounded by photos of your “precious gifts” – your pupils! Use this exercise to remind the pupils in your class that they are both individuals and part of a whole class, and that everyone has something to offer. You can ask everyone to write one good thing about themselves which will accompany the photos too.

3. Remind pupils that Christmas isn’t (just) about presents, but is a time to be warm, generous and kind

At Christmas, pupils get excited about the presents they will receive, and the fun things they will do. Don’t lose the spirit of Christmas with this classroom display, which highlights the importance of being kind at Christmas.
