Oh my mumbling-grumbling days! 2023 continues with the testing, increasingly expensive, unpredictable, record-breaking and emotional times we’ve seen recently with a variety of stories from around the world!
What a week once again - Premier League dominators, BBC presenter suspended, music format comeback, strikes strikes strikes, charity marathon runner, classic videogame movie release, landmark stamps unveiled, second album hits number one, social media ban consideration, scary movie comeback, movie script leak and musician gig cancellations!!! What does the beginning of 2023 hold in store for us all? There’s only one way to find out - in the NEEEEEEWWWWSSS QUUUUUUUIIIIIZZZ! :)
New quiz uploaded each week of the term, ALL YEAR LONG! More than ten years and still going strong :) Many thanks to everyone who downloads this, it is very much appreciated and I’m glad it is useful for your form groups!
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. :)
It's good to leave some feedback.
