Teacher Information about Advent Calendar

Back to Advent Calendar

Where does the information on each country in the advent calendar come from?

Most of the information on the Woodlands Junior Advent calendar comes from schools and visitors around the world sending us the information on Christmas in their country.

When does the Advent Calendar start?

The Advent Calendar will start on December 1st. It is only from this date that the 'no peeping' sign is removed.

Quiz for students

Woodlands Junior would like to thank Pete Cowen, from Benton Park Primary School, for sharing the quiz he made based around our Advent Calendar.

How are advent calendar is being used

"We have been paraphrasing the facts for each country and printing them out and pasting them underneath each countries' flag. We made each of the flags out of felt and other craft materials. This poster will be a great learning tool for years to come."

"We print the pages each day and put them on our noticeboard."

What will happen in December?

Through out December, we activate our Calendar after 21:00 GMT the night before each day. This allows our visitors from over seas to be able to open the calendar during their morning.

Please note: As we are changing our advent main page daily, when you visit our page the next day you may still be viewing an old version ( a cache ) of the page.

How to solve the problem

For Netscape browsers, try using the Reload menu item.
For Internet Explorer, use the Refresh menu item.

You may need to do this a few times. If you still can't open the window try depressing the ALT key on your keyboard and then press Reload/Refresh at the same time.

Why you may have to do this

Internet browsers have a built-in time-saving mechanism that allows you to view the most recent pages without the browser actually "going out to the web" and reloading that page from scratch. When you first view a web page, the emailbrowser stores or "caches" the page. That means you may be viewing an old version of a web page -- the version of a website that your browser previously saved onto your hard disk -- instead of the latest revised version.
