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.
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.
