Round off the year with these fun-focused activity ideas for both in and outside the classroom

Although much joy comes with the thought of the upcoming break, having to say goodbye to your current class can make the end of term feel bittersweet. Instead of dwelling on their inevitable move upwards, why not focus on making memories in the last few weeks of term? How? With our collection of the very best end-of-year games, challenges and tasks, of course.

Grow a Plant - Board Game

A board game that you can play in the classroom or at home. Children learn how to take turns and learn what seeds need to grow to become plants.

You will need:
• 1 x Game board
• 4 x Players cards
• 1 x dice (not provided)
• 16 x Plant cards
• 4 x Counters (not provided)

Place all the plant cards in the middle of the board. Each player gets a player’s card (Seed, Sun, Water) and place their counter on the Start. Each time they cross the Start, players can tick one of their seed boxes. Players try to collect water and sun in order to grow their seeds into plants. Once they have all three (seed, water and sun), they can have a plant card.

The aim of the game is to complete your card by growing 4 plants. Be careful, if you land on a caterpillar or the boots, then your plant is taken away from you and you need to grow another one. Also the bird will eat one of you seeds if you land on it. Good luck!
