2021 continues with the lockdown, online lessons Zooming all over the show and screentime at an alltime high - 5 hours of lessons a day in front of a laptop keeping an eye on emails, zooms, teams, online courses and staff meetings - eyestrain is the winner!
What a week once again -nearly half term though, United scrape through, UK visitors pay for tests, Storm Darcy hits, a new Mars satellite, Fredo bites back, Pokemon cards sell for $2m, the 55th Superbowl, TV licences go up again, Foo Fighters triumphant return and don’t swallow any magnets, kids - our government-led journey continues into 2021- when will we ‘reopen’ despite never actually closing? Who can say? What will 2021 hold in store for us all?
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. :) Currently doing this as a whole year Zoom activity with their parents and carers too :)
These are great for tutor times at the end of a long week!
