Start or end of year bingo is a fun way to celebrate either the start or end of the academic year at your school.

This activity provides an opportunity for both you and your pupils to unwind, relax and have some fun. After all, if you’re using this as an end of term activity, you’ve been working hard all year!

Start or end of year bingo is suitable for different age groups. Customise the board to suit the needs and preferences of your particular class.

In this download we’ve included filled in versions suitable for KS2. There’s also blank versions (for start and end of year) so you can create your own and photocopy it.

Togetherness and teamwork

One of the benefits of start or end of year bingo activities is that they foster a sense of togetherness and teamwork within your class.

This is because players have to work together towards a common goal – to fill up their bingo cards. As a result, pupils get to interact with each other in a relaxed and fun environment. This helps to build stronger relationships.

Teaching tool

You can also use start or end of year bingo activities as a tool for teaching and reinforcing certain concepts or skills. For example, customise your bingo cards to include vocabulary words, maths problems, or historical facts.

This not only makes the game more educational but also helps students to review and reinforce what they have learnt throughout the year.

Lastly, bingo games can be a great way to reward pupils for their hard work throughout the academic year. Why not offer a small prize to the winner of the game? This will help to motivate and incentivise everyone to participate and have fun.

In conclusion, start or end of year bingo activities are a fun and beneficial way to celebrate either the beginning or the end of the academic year. They promote community, teamwork, collaboration, and can be used as a teaching tool.

By organising start or end-of-year bingo activities you’re sure to create a memorable and enjoyable experience for everyone involved.
