Raise children’s aspirations and broaden their horizons with a seasonal twist for the end of term with our 'What's My Line? Festive special' pre-recorded resource! Children are invited to meet a suite of volunteers who are working very hard to bring us festive magic, and use clues to guess their jobs. This 20-minute interactive video for KS1 comes with extension learning activities to consolidate the links to aspirations and the world of work, including ideas for those classes who already used the videos last year, where children can put themselves in the shoes of volunteers and flex their reflection, design, numeracy, literacy and drama skills! 

This resource contains:

  • 20-minute video with optional pause points for glossary, questions and discussion
  • Learning activity pack with downloadable PowerPoint slides, worksheets, quiz and extension ideas for children to reflect on the volunteers’ talks and explore their own skills:
    • Festive Futures drawing competition template
    • Guessing game recording sheet
    • Plenary quiz and reflection activity
    • Plan the Queen’s Christmas dinner
    • Design your own festive window display
    • Santa’s skills
  • Tips on how to plan your own live aspirational activity with Primary Futures volunteers
