Learning Outcomes

This is a lesson about the nativity where infants can learn about the story of the first Christmas.

 

Introduction

Introduce the lesson by asking the children what special time of year is coming up soon. Discuss some traditions and customs associated with Christmas e.g. Santa, presents, food, snow, reindeer etc. Ask the children if they know what happened at the very first Christmas. Create a KWL chart on the whiteboard or interactive screen.

Development

When the KWL chart is completed, tell the class that the story of the first Christmas happened over 2,000 years ago when a baby called Jesus was born. Read the class the story of the Nativity. Afterwards, discuss the sequence of the story and give the children sequencing cards to complete in small groups or pairs.

Plenary

After the sequencing activity, revisit the KWL chart and fill out the ‘What we have Learned’ section.
