Design your own Christmas Cards for The Friends of John Clare School

The Friends of John Clare School would like you to design your own Christmas Cards, which you will be able to purchase to send to family and friends.

Please remember to:

  • Use the template given.
  • Ensure that drawings stay within the black border – anything drawn outside this will be cropped!
  • If you include writing, ensure that it is clear and spelt correctly.
  • Print your name and class name clearly at the bottom of the page.
  • For best results, use felt-tips, colouring pencils (using a firm pressure), wax crayons or paint – do not use collage material, metallic paints/pencils/glitter etc as these give varying results on the final cards.
  • Hand in to your Class teacher by the deadline above.

We look forward to seeing your creative designs!




Please remember to continue to read aloud to an adult at home – the importance of this cannot be over emphasised and this is part of your Home Learning Tasks set each week. Use the questions in the front of your Reading Record when discussing what you have read. House Points for reading at home will be awarded each week. Remember your Reading Record will be checked every Friday morning!
