See below how some of our Activity Packs can be used across different religious and historic festivals
The third activity in the Digital Art Activity Pack could be used by pupils to create wrapping paper or decorations based around festivals or celebrations such as repeating/rotating Christmas trees/snowmen, pumpkins for Halloween or Easter Eggs.
The Data Handling Pupil Activity Pack includes a pixel art with cells activity. Once pupils have acquired the skills, they could use them to create Christmas/festival pictures.
If pupils have drawn Christmas/Easter Cards etc by hand then you could add the pupil with a video message using our Green Screen Activity Pack.
Use different activities in the Animation Activity Pack could be used to animate rockets going through the sky as either GIFs or animated Powerpoint/keynote slides.
Pupils (and teachers) could also use a combination of the iPad stop-motion animation activity in the Key Stage 2 Animation Pack along with the Green Screen Activity Pack to created Christmas Animation Scenes. See example below.
The Scratch Bats Pupil Activity Pack teachers pupils how to use glide, costume and repeat code blocks to program animated flying bats for Halloween. Within Scratch, there are also ice-skating penguins and doves for a Christmas theme that could be used as the sprites.
The Comic Creation Activity Pack has a range of festival backgrounds, characters and objects to use (including Christmas and Halloween). For older pupils, they could use the iMovie Activity Pack or eBook Creation Activity Pack to tell the story of a festival or even create Christmas videos using music made with the Music Activity Pack.
The Game Creation Activity Pack include a Candy Crush style activity which could be adapted to different festival objects. The pack also demonstrates how to make a platform game with example being Santa running across the chimney tops.
