Back for 2024, this bumper end-of-year quiz ensures that your non-exam students are usefully occupied at the end of the school year while also having fun and letting off steam!

It’s the perfect end-of-term activity for a tutor group or mixed year groups as there are questions on a whole host of topics for a wide range of ages.

What’s included

Our big fat quiz includes 65 questions on a summer holiday theme and combines a current affairs quiz with a trivia / general knowledge quiz (aka low-stakes retrieval practice of your students’ subject knowledge!) and some brain-teasing puzzles and riddles.

How to use this end-of-year quiz

If you’re with your tutor group all day, why not attempt the whole thing? For shorter sessions, you can either do the first and final rounds or pick and mix from the questions to compile your own version.

The seven rounds in our end-of-year quiz are as follows:

  1. a review of the year’s news — updated for 2024!
  2. a languages round
  3. a round of maths / verbal reasoning puzzles
  4. a science round
  5. a geography picture round
  6. a history round
  7. a round of rebuses and riddles.

The question types include multiple-choice questions, pictures, puzzles and riddles, with plenty of bonus points up for grabs.

Our fun summer quiz is great for encouraging teamwork, practising communication skills and keeping students focused in the last week or on the last day of term before the summer holidays. To really harness their competitive spirit, why not offer prizes for each round?

Answers are provided in the PowerPoint.
