World Cup 2018 Country Flags Matchup Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover PE Sport

(3)
Country Flags sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘World Cup 2018’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

The Big Fat News Quiz of the Year 2020 End of Christmas Term Form Tutor Activity Cover Lesson

It’s baaaaaaaaacck! For teh tenth year! 60 questions based on the world’s happenings over the last year of January to December 2020. Covers News, Media, Celebs, Music, Politics and general what’s been happening. I’ve tried to keep it light and not too much lockdown drama as we deserve a bit of fun after the unique year we’ve all just had! And, oh, what a year, it started ordinarily enough, but, woah, the end of January saw the world change in the most profound way imaginable. Incredible selfless people stepped up to the challenge, the NHS was brought to the fore like never before, the entire education system changed overnight, we weren’t allowed to leave our homes, shops sold out of essentials, we had to queue in the rain, Presidents suggested injecting disinfectant to help, we came back to school and went into lockdown again, vaccine news brightens the horizon and we head into Christmas with restrictions and possible future lockdowns! How much can YOU remember? The questions are pupil-accessible being a range of news based events, celebrity, music and movies covering a wide range of topics to make it so there’s something for everyone. Split into 4 rounds of three months each. Good for filling an hour in the last week of term and a good informal one to do with your form if you have an hour to fill with something that’s not just a ‘watch a video’ and you actually want to spend some time with your class! I tend to pad it out into an hour and a half with discussions, sweets, prizes and rewards between and during rounds. Answer sheet for students to fill in on final slide. Lasts around 60 minutes with a form, I usually split them into groups and give rewards etc. Have a good Christmas break and see you in January 2021! PS, if anything exciting happens I will alter the last couple of December questions and reupload before the end of term, would be free to re-download in that event! :)
