It's the end of the year and that time has come for the never-ending tutor time or the filler lesson with Y7 or maybe even a staff quiz. Never fear, the Big Fat End of Year Quiz 2017 is here.
55 marks spread over 7 rounds covering - News, Music, Film, Sport, Song Intros, Dingbats and General Knowledge.
The quiz takes about an hour at full-speed, but obviously you can cut it up or fill it out to suit your needs. The questions aim to span Y7 - Y12 age range, so there should be something everyone can have a go at.
Of course, it's up to you how you deliver it. I recommend splitting students in to teams of 3-4 and marking their answers at the end of each round to build a cumulative score (I like to give a small prize at the end of each round). The spreadsheet allows for rapid results collection and adds up the scores as you go, highlighting the winner in each round. It also has the option for the "Weighted Score" - so you can give a twist at the end and teams can still have a chance, even if one round threw them.
All of the questions follow a very simple format using as few words as possible and with big picture clues. You could add additional clues in to suit the age of your students.
The price of the quiz reflects the time it has taken to prepare. Please be aware that the quiz is a large PowerPoint file with many pictures and sound clips. Where possible, I have tried to use the most common and accessible formats (i.e. all audio clips are .mp3 files). Enjoy!
