"Wouldn't it be sad if those last Maths lessons of the term were wasted. Quite often special school activities take place during the last week of term and as a result some pupils are taken out of normal lessons leaving you, the teacher with only two thirds of your normal class and an expectation to do something different.
It would be a crime if you put on a video (unless it was a Maths video) or simply told the pupils to get on with their own pastimes when there are so many out-of-the-ordinary mathematical activities you could be doing. Above you can see hand picked selections of activities that have worked for me in the past and would be great fun for you to try with your classes at the end of this term.
Please contact Transum if you have any ideas for any end of Term activities that we haven't included on this site."
