Round off another successful year with these reflective and celebratory activities for your form

With the end of the academic year just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about ways you can help pupils to reflect on their achievements and think ahead to next term.

To help you do just that, we’ve hand-picked a selection of top assemblies and activities, guaranteed to round off the year with a smile.

Assembly ideas

Celebrate success in all its forms with this adaptable year group assembly, including space for photos highlighting some of this year's achievements.

Alternatively, why not look ahead to the summer holidays with this fully-resourced assembly pack? Complete with a script, short film, presentation and game, this assembly is ideal for encouraging students to make the most of their break, even if they aren’t jetting off on their dream holiday.

Tutor-time activities

Keep your form group engaged until the very last day of term with these end-of-year activities, including a future-focused letter-writing task, dream board and selfie design activity. For something a little more competitive, this editable quiz not only recaps some of the key news events of the year, but also contains a couple of rounds dedicated to your tutor group.

Get pupils reflecting on the last three terms and thinking ahead to the next with this simple review and target sheet. And, just for fun, wrap up the year with these humorous “most likely to” certificates, which can be easily adapted to suit the personalities in your form.


Celebrating Success assembly

This was an assembly for my Year 7 class. They recently had a presentation evening giving out awards. At the end of the slide i included different pictures from the year so far. I have taken these off, but hopefully you get the idea. I used someone else's assembly on Success to get the funny images. Also played Sigur Ros Hippolia at the end to make it uplifting. You could use this for any year group. Adapt as you wish.

End of Year Quiz 2016

I made this end of year quiz using the powerpoint someone else made as a base. It has 5 rounds: News, Movies, Music, Our Year anf Famous Faces.

The 'Our Year' round I gave them 10 questions about things that had happened throughout the year (like 'who scored 2 own goals in PE this year?' or 'How many questions were in your end of year Maths exam?')

The 'Famous Faces' round, I found promotional photos of the students taken by the school and cropped them to show just their eyes or nose etc. and they had to name the student.

All the answers for each question are in the notes.

Form awards 1

These are some certificates I made and awarded to my Year 8 form at the end of the school year after I had been their form tutor since year 7. The certificates went down really well - it obviously helps if you know your students well.
