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.

Indoor activities

If we know anything about the British summer, it's that it is worthwhile being prepared for rain! Including everything from seaside I-spy to sandy toes problem-solving, this collection of songs, rhymes and hands-on ideas* enables you to bring the spirit of summer to your classroom. Alternatively, embrace the benefits of rain and let your pupils' knowledge of the stages of plant growth blossom with this easy-to-use board game.

For something truly memorable, ask young learners to reflect upon the year with this comprehensive end-of-year workbook*, which sees them drawing their best friend and naming their favourite subject.  

Outdoor activities

As soon as the sun shows signs of coming out, prepare your students for alfresco dining with this simple activity sheet, ideal for setting the scene for a teddy bears' picnic. On the theme of food, why not task teams of students to work together and solve a series of clues in order to find the gingerbread man with this editable treasure hunt?

And you can’t go wrong with an afternoon of parachute games! This visual booklet outlines a series of tried-and-tested songs and games, designed to develop co-ordination, listening skills and teamwork in a fun and memorable way.
