End of Term Quiz #2

End of Term Quiz #2

After the popularity of my first one, I thought I'd share my latest oneAn interactive, End of Term Quiz.This has a variety of rounds - TV Intros, Children's Literature, Film, Science, Dingbats etc. There's nothing really time-sensitive here: although there is a slight Christmas flavour to the movie round.It's aimed to be accessible across the Key Stages - I've done it with 7s (with a few clues) up to 13s. It should happily take up a lesson - the answers are included at the back.
