Holiday primary resources, lesson plans and ideas for teachers

Are you looking for ready-to-use primary lesson plans, resources and activity ideas for special days, festivals, holidays or events? We've created a collection of flexible, fun teaching packs – perfect for use at the end of term, or during those special times of year such as Chinese New Year and Bonfire Night.

Save time with PlanBee's ready made primary Holiday teaching resources

You'll find that some of these teaching packs are perfect for whole-school events, too – as there are different versions available for different age ranges: Years 1–2, Years 3–4 and Years 5–6.

As with all PlanBee lessons, these are available to buy and download either as Complete Series schemes of work or as Individual lessons, so you can teach them in sequence or mix and match them with your existing planning.

Resources at your fingertips

We really do mean this! Whether you want an individual lesson or a complete scheme of work, our teaching packs come with a detailed lesson plan that walks you through an engaging input, a slideshow presentation to go with it, differentiated activity ideas, and — in most cases — a range of printable resources such as worksheets, activity cards or writing frames. If anything else is required, you'll be able to see at a glance, as everything you need is listed at the top of every plan!

Written by professionals

We're qualified primary teachers with extensive classroom experience. We know how hard the job is! That's why we try to give you as much as we can with every teaching pack – to help you and make life easier. We've obsessively pored over the National Curriculum objectives to make sure that you get excellent coverage when you teach with PlanBee, and that you get engaging, challenging learning activities with which all of your children can achieve and make progress.

It only takes a moment to sign up with PlanBee and start downloading, so you can claim back a bit more You time! Our Complete Series of lessons come with assessment questions and marking grids, too – it's another way we've tried to make the incredible job you do that little bit easier!

Our Reviews

“I have been using PlanBee for about a year. I first used it for Year One Science (plants) and was very pleased with the structure of the lesson plans which were well structured and engaging. The activities were interesting and held the children's attention brilliantly. The lessons linked together very well and the differentiation was clear and appropriate. I could teach from the plan with hardly any adaptation, saving me lots of time for a very reasonable price. I can't wait for Year One maths resources to be created!”
