Flip selector – selects pupils’ names and flips a page over and over to select it. Could use to give pupils a question or topic to talk about. Good idea to use for the unpredictable CA speaking question.

Match Maker – pairs memory game.
Word mix – give three clues for a word at the bottom. Pupils can use a miniwhiteboard to say their answer. Idea: What could the shops be?
What’s the question – set teams, each circle is worth a different amount of points, write an answer and pupils give a question.
Bingo – choose some numbers, pick a card, an answer appears, if the pupil has that number, they cross it off their list.
