Blockbusters template

Blockbusters template

Following the popularity of Blockbusters resources, here is the template I use in my lessons. Add the first letters of words in a phrase, images or words to the ‘Add text, initials or picture here’ on the yellow hexagons. In teams (red and blue), pupils aim to make a continuous line of their colour horizontally. This can be as long or as short as they want, as long as it’s continuous. The other team will aim to block them. When they have chosen a yellow hexagon and have answered correctly, click on that hexagon (on your computer). Then click on the relevant team colour to make it change to either blue or red. Instructions are in the notes section of the PowerPoint.

Connect 4 template

Connect 4 template

This can be used in any language (or subject!). Type your clues into the ‘Clue’ boxes. Pupils work in two teams (red and blue) and their objective is to get 4 (or 3, if you prefer) of their coloured rectangles in a row for a point. This can be vertically, horizontally or diagonally. I allow 5 in a row to count as 2 points. In presentation mode, click on the relevant coloured circle to change the colour of the rectangle.

Whizzy loop

Whizzy loop

Use this whizzy loop by pressing the 's' key on your keyboard to start and stop it spinning super fast. You can change the text on the slides quite easily to suit your purposes - there is one here with numbers, one with dates and one with sentences on and several other ideas - at its simplest you can just ask pupils to translate the slide it stops on but you can use it in many, many different ways - put pupil names on it as a name selector, or sentences starters and a connective to build sentences - you choose. I have put several examples on here to help with ideas, but the concept of randomising things is the same throughout. Enjoy! The pupils LOVE coming to press the 's' key.....the simplest of things seem to please them.

Also attached is a lesson grid so you can keep track of the types of tasks you are doing with your class, so that you don't end up doing translations or match ups with the same class every lesson!!

Guess the Phrase (Hangman style)

Guess the Phrase (Hangman style)

Create your own keyword guessing game. Kids pick a letter, click it on the screen and any matches will appear in your chosen key phrase. (It is similar to hangman, but there is no hanging-man or consequences for a wrong guess - sadly PowerPoint can't do that!) Zoom out of the slide to see full instructions on how to create your own game. Please note: Depending on your version of PPT the font may change slightly - but you can easily draw a selection box around everything and change the font if needed.
