Week number SEVEN of the bizarre 2020-2021 academic year! And how the world has changed in one short month! New quiz uploaded each week of the term, ALL YEAR LONG! More than ten years and still going strong :)
*** WE ARE OFF FOR TWO WEEKS HALF TERM AFTER THIS WEEK HERE (yay!), SO THE NEXT ONE WILL BE ON 2ND NOVEMBER! :) ***
13 topical questions of the past week’s news, across the UK and the world.
Designed to be used as a 10-20 minute activity in formtime - you could make it a little longer by talking about and discussing some of the questions.
ANY MIS-SPELLINGS/MISSING CAPITALS ETC. IN THE PREVIEW ARE INTENTIONAL AND LINK TO THE LITERACY QUESTIONS IN THE REST OF THE QUIZ!
Powerpoint so can be used on a standard whiteboard.
Includes 2 literacy and 1 numeracy questions based on the other questions.
Works well as a form group activity in registration time - I give sweets to the winning team (we’re not supposed to give sweets out, so it’s a nice ‘naughty’ reward and makes (some of) them watch and check their apps about the news in the week. :)
