The Christmas carols in this pack are ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ and ‘The First Noel’.

After reading, or listening to, the lyrics in the songs, pupils can answer the accompanying questions, either independently or as part of a whole class or group guided reading session. The carols could be explored at the same time, or each one could be used at different times during the festive period.
