The News Quiz 18th - 25th September 2017 Form Tutor Time Topical Events Activity Settler Starter

13 topical questions of the past week's news, across the UK and the world. 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/reward points to the winning group! (We're not supposed to give out sweets so it's a nice 'naughty' reward for knowing about the world this week!) Created 38 school weeks of the year and uploaded to TES most weeks.

Black History Month, Citizenship and PSHE

Black History Month, Citizenship and PSHE

This is an ideal bundle for a colourful celebration of Black History Month for Key Stage 3 and 4 students. Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage was recommended by the QCA as a critical text for the teaching of modern British multi-ethnic history. Triumph of the Water Lily has been described by Kirkus Review as a transporting text that vividly describes the culture of modern middle class Nigerians and the important rite of passage associated with African courtship and a traditional Nigerian wedding . Kadeja the Fulani Pearl Queen, is a haunting tale about an African princess who was captured by slave raiders as she travelled through the African rainforest to be reunited with her betrothed, the heir of the Ashanti throne.

The Triumph of the Water Lily

The Triumph of the Water Lily

An original story; fresh and realistic. It is a book about topical issues inNigerian marriages, culture clashes, childlessness, pride and humility, grief and pain, love and joy, politics, the diverse forms of religion inherent in Nigeria. It is a book about qualities and values which transcend culture, ethnicity. A book about profound nature of an African thriving in the midst of adversity. The Triumph of the Water Lily is a celebration of womanhood. It is a moving exploration of life and death, in which Effua, the narrator, tells of a passionate story of trial and tribulation, of the triumph of love and life, even in the throes of death. The novel attests to the nobility, elegance and profound goodness of Nkem, the central character. It is also a courageous story of romance filled with excitement, novelty and moments of shock, particularly for Effua, whose life has been inexorably influenced by Nkem's.

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage

Silhouettes of a Treasured Heritage is a fictional narrative, which examines the consequences of being a person of racially mixed parentage in our world today. It is a thrilling and critical appreciation of such experiences as told by Miranda - the heroine; experiences that would be familiar to many people of similar background. The novel uniquely and dispassionately explores issues from both sides of the racial divide. It challenges stereo-typical perceptions; love and hate, power and influence. It is a story of healing, of hope and of promise for a racially divided world. Miranda takes the reader through her life in Britain, Ghana and the USA. "Am I 'White' or 'Black'", she asks?

Australian General Knowledge Fact Jeopardy Quiz

Australian General Knowledge Fact Jeopardy Quiz

This fun and engaging Jeopardy Style Game is the perfect way to bond with your class and learn about Australia. I typically put the class into small groups and ask a member of the group to choose a color and number. That is the question that they have to answer. If correct they get one point. Then I move to the next group. Alternatively the whole class answers and then we tally up the points to get a winner. I run it on an interactive whiteboard but would be equally successful on a projector, computer or TV screen. Alternatively it could be run for an individual student on their own device. When you start the game press the shuffle button to randomize the questions ensuring that no game is ever the same. This means that this Jeopardy game can be used multiple times with the one class as it is different every time. This is a PowerPoint Macro Show. To run the game double click the file and make sure you say "yes" to running macros. If you do not the questions will not shuffle correctly. I have tested on a PC but it should work on other devices. If this is your first time with Macros let me know by personal message and I am happy to answer all your questions. Enjoy
