KS2/KS3 RESOURCE PACK : The Miracle on Ebenezer Street

What’s the story?

‘Old Marley’s magic was beginning to stir…’

George is about to spend his third Christmas without his mum. Since she died, George’s life has felt dull and grey; his dad has thrown himself into his work and has no time for family, and definitely no time for Christmas.

Then, George stumbles across Marley’s Curiosity Shop. There he finds a mysterious snow globe, which – though George can’t quite understand how – appears to show a scene from George’s past. A Christmas in which he and his family were together, and happy . . .

That night, George and his dad are swept on an adventure to three Christmases – past, present, and future. With help from new friends, and just a touch of magic, can they begin living life in full colour again?

This resource pack includes:

Three brilliant lessons focus on Christmas past, present and future with activities exploring themes of family, kindness and Christmas. Children will be able to use their creativity to think about how they feel about these themes in relation to the story and express this through art and design and comprehension exercises. These resources would be useful in supporting reader development, literacy, English and PSHE lessons and also festive activities in the classroom or at home.
