Ready-to-use resources to help you to reflect on and reward good behaviour at the end of the academic year
With the summer break in sight, it's an ideal time to reflect on how hard your class have worked this year and reward their efforts before they move on. Not only will this wrap up the end of the year on a positive note, but it can also boost self-esteem and motivate learners to work hard in the future.
Give your classes the recognition they deserve with these hand-picked resources, from individual acknowledgements to fun, whole-class activities.
Handing out certificates is a simple way of celebrating hard work, effort and commendable character traits. This collection of sailor-themed certificates* are great for primary pupils, containing 70 editable, visually appealing awards. Alternatively, get your class to nominate their peers for one of these colourful certificates*.
For a more practical reward, these celebratory bookmarks can be personalised, laminated and used beyond the classroom.
Whole class rewards
After recognising individual achievements, give young learners a break from the curriculum and with these engaging end-of-year games, including freeze dancing, word games and finger aerobics. Meanwhile, older students will love the challenge of answering this bumper end-of-year quiz* in teams as they recap the major events of the year.
Why not set aside a whole day to reward your hard-working pupils? From taking small groups to events outside of school to in-class craft, filmmaking or musical activities, this resource pack provides a detailed proposal and presentation for organising a fun-filled day.
