Just some Christmas recipes or ANY recipes needed for the layout and language...a bit of stealing of their ideas like teaspoon or a pinch of or 110 g of or STIR, Crumble, mix, bake in oven at.... I should probably say "MAGPIE" as that's the word for gleaning all those ideas from different folk in school apparently - so sayeth trainee teachers and I'm not messing with those in the know!
Think about what Christmas means...children come up with amazing things, as always. Begin to explore your Christmas recipe: a dash of joy, a gallon of glitter ( or much less if you're heartily sick of it!), add the warmth of a fire etc etc. I know your children will be able to write much more flamboyantly than me.
In the spirit of the recipe if you add a dash of editing you can then transform the recipe into a card, little book or something to hang up at home AND reinforce the notion that genuine learning, thinking, creating and WRITING still happens when you're thinking Christmassy fun thoughts too.
