Winter topical pack for schools

We’ve lots of fun activities for you to enjoy with your pupils this winter term with our free Winter topical pack. It will educate them, stimulate their brain cells and entertain them!

What’s in the Winter topical pack?

The pack explores all aspects of winter including:

  • the weather traditionally associated with it,
  • more recent weather trends, and
  • seasonal produce.

It also includes creative snowflake activities, where pupils can make their own paper snowflakes!

Write about winter – Use the template with your pupils to either write about winter or draw pictures that represent winter.

Climate change and winter – Review our winter weather facts from the Met Office to understand how snowfall varies across the country and how general weather trends are changing. Then, ask the children to find out what winter was like when their parents/grandparents were young. Has winter changed significantly?

Make a snowflake – Use the template to create hexagonal, symmetrical snowflakes. There are two versions: a simple version for Key Stage 1 (as below); a more advanced version, which involves more folding and sharper scissors, for Key Stage 2.

Best things about winter – Use this template to inspire your pupils to write about what they like best about winter using winter-specific vocabulary. Will it all be about Christmas or could ice-skating or sledging feature?

Winter fruit and vegetables – Sort the fruit and vegetables into two groups, those we eat in the summer and those we eat in the winter.
