That’s why every teacher should give some serious thought to making it extra special. If you’re worried about putting together a memorable bash, then you can’t go wrong by following these handy tips.

musical chairs

This game is a classic that’s guaranteed to get everyone going. It doesn’t take much work either, all you’ll need is school chairs and a festive soundtrack. You probably won’t even need to explain the rules!

table covers

To spruce the place up and give it a festive feel, use table covers on the schooldesks. These can feature images of reindeer, decorations or even Santa Claus. It’ll set the scene in an instant.

carol singing

There’s nothing like a good old-fashioned sing-along to get people into the holiday spirit. To move things along, you’ll want to print out the lyrics and make sure everyone has a copy before things get going. Once the harmonies start, you can either enjoy the performance or join in yourself.

LUCKY DIPS

Children of all ages look forward to opening their presents on Christmas Day. Really though, there’s no need for them to wait until 25th December. Instead, you can give the class a taste of what’s in store by allowing them to pull a gift out of a lucky dip.

dance floor

It couldn’t be easier to make a dancefloor. Simply clear all the unnecessary classroomfurniture and direct pupils towards the open space. They’ll be busting a move in no time whatsoever once you’ve got a festive soundtrack on the go.

pass the parcel

Obviously, if you go with pass the parcel, you'll need to give it a festive twist. The best way to do this is by playing Christmas music and providing treats such as candy canes.

PLACE CARDS

Every pupil will feel very special when they realise there are individualised place cards spread around the school furniture. On each one, write a pupil’s name and pen a little message for them.

festive bingo

Traditional bingo relies upon numbers being called. Since it’s the holidays, why not mix it up a bit? Call out names of reindeer and other festive-themed words such as ‘stocking, ‘elf’ and ‘chimney’.

pin the antlers on the reindeer

You’ve heard of pin the tail on the donkey; well, pin the antlers on the reindeer works exactly the same – only it’s much more appropriate for December. Make sure you have prizes for the best attempts.

santa

You’ve just got to have Santa in attendance! OK, so maybe the real one might be busy, but the class doesn’t have to know this. Set up a grotto so that everyone can really feel the magic of Christmas when your stand-in arrives.

Have fun!!

Everyone will no doubt have the time of their lives if you follow these nifty little tricks.

Remember to give yourself a pat on the back once the party goes down a storm.
