End your lessons with a bang !
Use this game as a plenary activity. This can be used for any subject and any year. E.g. MFL – translation of vocabulary
Maths – answers to sums. History – dates, facts

I personally have used it for pupils to translate vocabulary covered in a topic, scaffolding questions, starting with single words and then building up to more complex sentences.

How to run the activity:
Split the class into two groups or more.
Teacher asks a question to each group.
Teacher selects by hands up (or miniwhiteboards, or team discussion).
Teacher selects a pupil to give the answer.
If the answer is correct – pupil can choose a mine.
If there's a coin under the bomb - one point for your team
If there's an explosion under the bomb - lose one point
If there's a super bomb - the rubber duck of the evil clown - lose 2 points.
The team with the most points wins!
