Try the TES quizzes collection and say farewell to the autumn term with a little competition. There are interactive templates based on television shows such as Deal or no Deal and Who Wants to be a Millionaire?. There is also a picture quiz, penalty shoot-out and bingo. bit.lytesQuizzes

OU for schools

Measuring the speed of light with chocolate, how American English came to be and the seven wonders of the microbe world are just three of the topics covered in nearly 200 free teaching resources shared by the Open University. Mostly aimed at secondary pupils, the videos offer engaging and quirky lesson ideas to inspire pupils in history, English, DT, media, geography and more. bit.lytesOU

Chocolate words

The producers behind the new West End musical Charlie and the Chocolate Factory have created key stage 3 English resources based on the show. Pupils can explore characters by writing diary entries and creating profile cards. There are also literacy activities based on Roald Dahl's original story. bit.lyWonkasKS3
