Resources to help you to kick-start learning in the new term

Going back to work after the holidays is never easy, so we’ve hand-picked a selection of resources to help make the transition back into school life as seamless as possible for both you and your learners.

  1. New Year assembly
    Including a script, video links and presentation, this assembly on resolutions and random acts of kindness is ideal for reinvigorating pupils at the start of term.
  2. Resolutions lesson plan
    Consider the history of and some of the statistics behind effective resolution-making before teaching your learners how to write meaningful targets.
  3. Target setting for the new term
    Based on Smart principles, these target-setting templates help older students to not only identify, but also to decide how they will achieve their goals ahead of exam season.
  4. Learning expectations poster
    Recap your expectations for learning in the classroom with this well-presented poster, which can be used as both a behaviour management tool and to boost your students’ self-esteem.
  5. Thinking skills activities
    Get your pupils back into the habit of exercising their brains and thinking creatively with this collection of games and puzzles, perfect for form time.


Don't forget to keep an eye on the dedicated secondary section of our blog for more seasonal and subject-specific resources inspiration.
