With the day of romance fast approaching, why not bring some of that seasonal love and joy into your classroom? From uncovering the history of 14 February to creating gifts for loved ones, embrace the mood using one of these themed activities with your class.

The story of Valentine Powerpoint

I made this to use in assembly so children would have an idea of where the whole St Valentine’s celebration came from.You could just as easily use on IWB in class. I make no claims for authenticity, this is info I gleaned from internet searches and made into a very basic story for younger children. Hope it’s useful. updated with spelling corrected oops!

Valentine's Day Maths (Treasure Hunt)

This activity is designed for KS2 and KS3 students, but it is also a very good activity to do with GCSE foundation students. It gets them working out the costs of gifts, meals and other outings for Valentine's Day. Questions are varied and include a bit of proportion and a few straightforward percentages.

Note that the answers to this activity produce an encrypted phrase. When the questions have been answered, the students should decipher this phrase.
An further (non-maths) extension can be for students to identify who the couples are and why they are famous!

A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so.

These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large cards can be pinned around the classroom and used for a whole class activity; the smaller (loop cards) can be used for group work or by individuals – they are particularly helpful for one-to-one tutorials and during interventions.

Teacher's Toolkit Thematic Resources: St. Valentine's

Love assembly - Forgiveness fosters love

This is a 3 page plan and a 13 slide PowerPoint presentation for an assembly on Love, with a focus on forgiving people who wrong you. It is easy to follow and requires no resources, so is perfect for using at the last minute! You can use the plan on its own or alongside the PowerPoint. (This is non-editable. Click ‘Read Only’ to open the PowerPoint.)

I like leading assemblies that are interactive, engaging and relevant to the children’s lives. This assembly involves a long anecdote on a childhood friendship. You can use the example in the plan or use an anecdote from your own childhood. There is a lot of opportunity for children to think about their own experiences of friendship and love and to feedback. This is followed by a quote from the bible to discuss and an example prayer/reflection to finish with.
