Having a movie afternoon with my class on the last day of term. Which Christmas films would 7 year olds like? Failing that any recent releases that they might like?

Ice Age Christmas one.

Gremlins, perfect.

It'll give them horrors, it'll tell them father christmas isn't real, and every parent will have stories to tell for years to come!

Arthur Christmas or the muppets Christmas carol!

Elf , the polar express

Not a Christmas one but the Emoji movie is recently out on DVD and my 7 year old loves it FML.

Home Alone 1 and 2 are favourites here too if you want Christmassy.

Mine love elf, Santa Claus and the polar express.
I like the grinch but know a few kids who are scared of him! Or nativity, I think the first ones the best.

Die hard

Arthur Christmas is nice.

Another vote for Arthur Christmas here.

The Charlie Brown Christmas special.

Or, indeed, Die Hard.

Queen I was going to let them choose but was worried they would pick the emoji movie! Would a seven year old like elf? It’s PG.

Home alone, nativity or jingle all the way are my 7 year olds favourites (she also loves gremlins)

chocolateworshipper Sat 16-Dec-17 17:25:03

Polar Express or Nativity

fraggle84 Sat 16-Dec-17 17:26:10

Arthur Christmas

MongerTruffle Sat 16-Dec-17 17:28:16

Home Alone (1 or 2, don't bother with the other three)
Jingle All The Way
Deck the Halls
Arthur Christmas

For a PG film, I think you need parental permission, so be a bit careful. Some schools ask for permission as part of blanket local visit/photography type bits at the beginning of each year. I'd check.

Arthur Christmas would be my choice personally! Love that film 😀

For a PG film, I think you need parental permission
The BBFC says that a teacher can legally show a film of any age rating to any child, just as a parent can. Some schools do ask for it, even though they don't need to.

MongerTruffle Sat 16-Dec-17 17:37:38

it = permission

WhyOhWine Sat 16-Dec-17 17:38:39

Elf or nativity (first one only)

dawnc27 Sat 16-Dec-17 18:02:32

santa claus the movie. all time classic, and if you dont have it then its only £3 at asda grin

Gremlins is ace but the original 80s version is classed as a 12, lots of swearing for 7 year olds. I watched it at 9 and my kids have seen it, but may not be appropriate in class! I think Elf, Arthur Christmas or Nativity would be good choices.

SparklyUnicornPoo Sat 16-Dec-17 18:12:15

My class have really loved Beethoven's Christmas Adventure, I avoid really well known films because I have a few that never shut up feel they need to tell us what is about to happen.

My 6 year old enjoys elf.
