Epic end of term activities

Jemma, our resource and development leader and qualified teacher, shares her top activities for both primary and secondary students that will make the last few weeks fly by!

Primary:

  1. Get creative and put together a scrapbook made of all the children’s work from the school year, and then let them take it home.
  2. Create a class memory tree from leaves, hands or butterflies. Provide each student with a leaf, and ask students to write down and decorate it with their favourite memory of the year.
  3. Take learning outside. Complete treasure hunts, math puzzles, science experiments, your class’s art projects or even read.
  4. Get active and play team sports. Like rounders, obstacle courses or aerobics to your classes favourite songs.
  5. Write a class story. Decide on an event and organise the scenes. Allocate the chapters out to groups to write and then come together to read as a class.

Secondary:

  1. Complete a Dragon’s Den or Apprentice style project. Turn on the competition with a prize for the most voted winner.
  2. Ask students to write a thank you letter to one of their teachers, then post them in the teacher’s staff tray.
  3. Student voice. Ask students to complete a survey based on the year’s topics. What did they enjoy the most? The least? Why? What would they love to include?
  4. Have a class debate. Move the desks for students to sit in a circle. Nominate a student to chair the debate and pick a recent topic.
  5. Get the students into groups and ask them to give themselves an imaginative name, in the style of a pub quiz. Include core content the students will also need for the following year.

 We hope these activities listed above are helpful and make the last few weeks before summer a lot easier! Do you have any other activities you would like to share? Get in touch today.
