trophy to reward students for good behaviour

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.

Individual rewards

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. Finally, the end of the year is the perfect time to send a positive message home by using this editable postcard template.

End of Year Class Bookmarks

These are the personalised bookmarks I created for my class last year. They still have the children's names and personalised messages on so that I could give you a flavour of what I wrote to them. I simply laminted them and cut them out and the children absolutely loved them. Very cheap at the end of the year too.

Editable Positive Postcard/Note Home

These are editable MS Word based positive notes you can print off and send home. I usually print two to a page, hence the identical two pages given. I hope you find these useful! I think I found the basis of the postcard as a 'star of the day&' resource somewhere on the web but I can&';t remember where so thanks and acknowledgements to that resource contributor.

End of the Year Reflection Game - interactive, engaging and fun!

End of the Year Jenga style hands-on reflection game.

​Here's a really unique and fun idea to reflect on the academic year as a whole group or small group, where you can really bond with your students and be assured that everyone will have a blast!

This end of year reflection activity uses the concept of the game Jenga where students build a tower and remove pieces stacking them on top whilst trying to not knock the tower over or to build the tallest tower! The set used in this activity is simply adorable isn't it, and each activity is colour coded to coincide with the set.

This end of year reflection game can be used in 4 different ways to suit your budget, needs, resources and preference so it's really versatile! I have also included both colour and mono versions of each set which you can print onto coloured paper instead to make it more ink friendly for you.

There is also a digital, interactive option as well where no printing is needed at all - you're fully covered with this pack!

What this resource includes:
• 54 end of the year reflection questions
• 3 different printable options
• colour and black and white options
• an interactive 60+ slide PowerPoint
• comprehensive teacher's notes

The benefits:
• no need to stick anything to your blocks
• 4 differentiated ways to play
• different printing options to save money if necessary
• a paperless option
• ideas for competitive ways to play as a class
• suitable for a wide range of age groups
• questions accessible to all students
• an engaging and fun way to bond and reflect as a class

So take some time at the end of the school year to reflect with your students on how far you've all come together, in an exciting, engaging and happy atmosphere - what a wonderful way to finish the year!
