The News Quiz 22nd -29th January 2018 Form Tutor Time Topical Events Settler Starter

13 topical questions of the past week's news, across the UK and the world. *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/reward points to the winning group! (We're not supposed to give out sweets so it's a nice 'naughty' reward for knowing about the world this week!) Created 38 school weeks of the year and uploaded to TES.

Draw a Tree / Journey of Life - Fun psychological tests!

Draw a Tree / Journey of Life - Fun psychological tests!

Two fun psychological tests that the students love! Journey in Life - Try to get your group as relaxed as possible and ask them to close their eyes and listen to you. Set the scene of a day in the country. They are just about to start out on a walk. Ask them to imagine each of the following in turn, and each time write down what they saw in their imagination. Tell them they should write down the first image that comes into their head – not think about it for too long. After they have written down each description you can interpret their images using the ideas below. DRAW A TREE - Give each student a blank piece of paper and ask them to draw a tree. Tell them they are not to ask any questions about how to draw it – it is up to them. Then take in all the drawings and display them on the floor or where they can all see them. You may be able to group them at this stage. The following are possible interpretations of their drawings – they could make up their own interpretations!
