It’s finally June! I always find June such a busy month but here are a few ideas/ lessons that I’ll be using in my classroom!
Looking back on this year!
- Your favourite trip this year
- A memory
- Something funny that happened
- A letter to your next teacher
- A letter with advice for the children who will be in your classroom next year
Maths trails – teachers can create their own based on the classroom, school and yard. Children could create their own in small groups and then swap with another group to complete.

Here's a sample of part of our maths trail! It's designed for our school playground! So many questions based on the yard covering lots of different areas from time to addition and subtraction, looking at odd and even numbers, length, shapes etc! The children really loved it and got to practise and revise lots of different areas! #maths #iteachtoo #mathstrail #teacher #outdoorclassroom #numeracy #teachersofinstagram #teachersfollowteachers
Maths investigations – I like these from Twinkl!
Mini beast trail
Walk around the local area – visit key locations important to the local area and its history.
I remember being in primary school myself and longing for May/June when we would go up to the secondary school fields for rounders – we loved it! The kids really enjoy it and its a great way to practice running, throwing, catching, hitting etc.
Another great outdoor P.E. lesson. Make up cards to use for orienteering.
Get the children to draw a map of the school playground – number different areas and place the card with a cone over it. The children then start at different numbers and the first to finish all of them wins.
Looking and responding to art
We’ve kept our Art in a large A3 sized folder all year. The children will each take their folder and pick out some of their favourite pieces which they will share with their group/ the class. I’ll then take pictures of some of their favourites which will be used as examples for next year.
