Why Christmas

You must use the website to answer the following questions:

  • Flag – what does it look like?
  • Where is your country? What is the temperature?
  • Santa Claus – What is he called and what does he do in that country? Does anyone else bring children gifts?
  • Food – Are there any special dishes they eat at Christmas time?
  • How to say Happy Christmas in that country
  • Traditions – what might you see .e.g. trees, decorations, parades etc?
  • Comparison – How do these compare to Scottish traditions (difference and similarities)?

P4B Australia Christmas Song

Just a reminder we will be filming the green screen videos again on Thursday 28th November so please bring any of the things detailed below back in!



As part of P4Bs class topic we have been looking at Christmas in Australia. One of the things the class noticed was that in Australia they sometimes change to words to Christmas songs due to it being summer in Australia.

P4B have now change the words to ‘Its a mashmallow world’ to better suit an Aussie Christmas. This week we are going to make a music video for the song using the schools green screen technology. For the video we are looking for the following props.

Anything Aussie themed (Hats, animals etc)


Anything christmas themed (Santa hats, Elf ears etc)
