The News Quiz MONTHLY October 2017 Form Tutor Time Topical Events Activity Settler Starter

15 topical questions of the month's news, across the UK and the world From the weekly News Quiz to be used as a monthly summary or because there's not time to do a quiz every week. Powerpoint so can be used on a standard whiteboard. Works well as a form group activity in form 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 12 months of the year and uploaded to TES each month.
