Kevin’s Christmas Resources

The latest primary addition to the programme’s bank of free, downloadable resources, is ‘Kevin’s Christmas Journey’, a series of festive cross-curricula challenges to use in the classroom.

‘Kevin’s Christmas Journey’ sees Kevin and friends join young people aged 5–14 in a selection of 15 quick and flexible starter activities and six longer cross-curricular activity ideas that offer links to PSHE, science, design and technology, English and maths.

Whether it’s solving recipe-related maths problems with Kevin or creating their own healthy advent calendars, these resources are designed to engage pupils with problem-solving and creative tasks.

The challenges each focus on a different subjects including: food technology (cooking skills), maths (problem solving), science (nutrition and plants), design and technology and art and design (producing 2D and 3D works), physical education (active play) and PSHE/PSE/health and wellbeing (healthy eating and appreciating other cultures).

Take a look at the diverse range of festive activities the new resources have on offer below.

Activities

  • Kevin’s Christmas Journey presentation
    Use Kevin’s Christmas Journey presentation to inspire your pupils with a series of fun and festive challenges. The presentation contains a series of cross-curricula challenges to use in the classroom, inspired by the story of Kevin the Carrot and his Christmas Journey. They explore Kevin the Carrot’s story through a wide range of subjects, creating opportunities to build problem-solving and higher-order-thinking skills, alongside some longer creative tasks. Activities vary from quick 5-15 minute starter activities/brain breaks to a selection of longer activity ideas to build on the initial discussions.
  • Kevin and Katie festive decorations activity sheets
    Ask students to create their own festive keratin-filled festive decorations by downloading one of our colour-in sheets. Choose your favourites or create a whole set for the Christmas tree! The Kevin and Katie cut-outs can also be affixed to a piece of card with a lollipop stick to create Kevin and Katie stick puppets. Use these to challenge pupils to create their own Kevin stories.
  • Festive Fresh Bunting activity sheet
    Challenge pupils to create their own Festive Fresh Bunting featuring their favourite fruits and vegetables. Pupils can colour in the example vegetables and/or create their own designs.
