Be grateful for any suggestions!
In my first few years I used to spend money (my own) on party food and drinks and although they enjoyed it, it caused a mess, took time to set up and cost me money! I then had children bring their own but this resulted in 'tricky' food being brought in e.g. a fairly small, homemade cake which 'must be shared equally between x and all of his classmates'.
My advice would be:
steer clear of food as they've only just had lunch anyway
have traditional party games with small prizes such as musical bumps, musical statues etc (remind children to bring in music)
pass the parcel - all classes I have taught have loved it, especially when the forfeits involve doing impressions of teachers!
At 3.30 on the last day, you all head off to the nearest Sainsbury's or Tesco and fill your cars with booze and sausages. Then you go home to your own lovely house with your own lovely family and friends, have a huge barbecue and drink until you are giggling helplessly. Then you camp in the garden and wake up when you can see things in single vision again.
