Who’d have guessed that social media sites would be such an inspiration for a printed yearbook theme? The average UK bodkin spends around 3 hours per day on social media, so it’s no wonder we feel at home in our portals of friendom. Our photos and stories sit in neatly stacked timelines, just like a yearbook in fact. Sounds like a great idea for a yearbook theme to me… how about you?
A blank page can be scary to some. Where do you start when writing your yearbook comment, or quote? Leading questions are a great way to guide your fellow year group.
You’ve probably thought of the obvious ones, like ‘nickname’, ‘most memorable moment’, ‘favourite colour’, ‘what will you be doing in 10 years time?’, etc. so we’ve gathered a few more ideas to help you expand your student, teacher and primary yearbook profile questions.
Proofreading is a dirty word. Nobody wants to talk about it, and certainly nobody wants to actually do it (what exactly is a split infinitive, anyway?). Ask anybody – proofreading is not only boring, but it’s hard. Right?Well, not exactly. When proofreading a yearbook, you don’t have to worry so much about grammar and rhetoric as you do about being mindful of what you’ve created. Think about how upset Fred would be if you set his name to Frida’s picture. It just wouldn’t be right.
Making a yearbook is a fun and very rewarding project. Who else is going to help you and your leavers’ year group remember your school days? Here’s your ultimate guide on how to make a yearbook using our free online Yearbook Hub builder.
Welcome back and happy new year to you, lovely reader!
Love them, or hate them resolutions happen without us even realising. The breaking of a new year helps us take a fresh look and start a clean slate whatever has gone before. Who hasn’t seen that meme in their newsfeed about the “first blank page of a 365 page book”?
Around 90% (just a guess) of us keep our new year resolutions in our head, which is fairly non-commital, so let’s try this – make a yearbook page of resolutions!
Photo booths are a bundle of fun for students of any age and can be as simple, or high-tech as you wish. Photo booth photos are versatile enough to suit a number of yearbook pages – student (and teacher) profile pages, photo collage/montage pages, friendship groups and prom photo pages.
Parties, pantos, markets, concerts, nativity, assemblies, awards nights – who else can almost smell the turkey? It’s a busy time of year both in and outside of school, but we thoroughly recommend taking a bit of time record your festivities for your yearbook.
A yearbook page or spread dedicated to all things Christmas is so much fun. Everyone mucks in, gets creative and shares that all important spirit of giving, which make fantastic photos!
Here are a few page ideas you can adopt to remember the warm and fuzzies of your time together leading up to the end of the Autumn term…
You may have stumbled across our previous post about creating yearbook pages to colour in. We really do love this idea, so how about applying the same level of interactivity to your yearbook cover?
Creating a yearbook cover to colour in gets everyone to put their own mark on their yearbook. What a fun activity for the last day of school!
In all honesty (and don’t tell the other yearbook pages I said this this) ‘Dream Job’ pages are a firm favourite of mine. Yearbooks are always unique, and personal, but there’s just something about sharing a peep-hole into what they want to ‘be’ when they grow up. Lots of primary and secondary schools make dream job pages – they’re such a creative way to show each student’s aspirations for the future.
Creating a fact file yearbook page is a great opportunity to share all. We don’t mean your deepest darkest secrets (save those for your confessions page!).Think of a yearbook fact file page as a Wiki for each student – their history, skills, likes, dislikes and plans for the future.
You’ll learn a lot more about each other, it’s just a shame you’re leaving!
