Hello Balkees
 
What about beginning the day with an English breakfast ?
 
We did one with younger children years ago and they loved it !!!

With this age preparing an English breakfast can be fun. And they can make some posters (while they īre waiting for something) about the food, they can draw something or take pictures for the poster. Another group could make a sponge cake or something ... I think Cariboo īs idea is great.

You could ask English facts trivia questions in a game. Some example questions are here https://www.did-you-knows.com/did-you-know-facts/english-language.php
 
 
You could put the questions that you judge to be the appropriate level for your students into a jeopardy template for a class game of jeopardy.

Hi Balkees !
 
You could organize a quiz on cultural facts about the UK , Great Britain,USA...
This could work as a school contest,where students coud put their quizzes in a box.
Another idea is a "Spelling Bee" contest.This contest is simple to do ...you just have to select a variety of words-some simple others more complex to pronounce.Students are asked to spell the words.Normally students love this kind of competition! You may organise with different teams from the same class or others !
 
Have fun with your activities !! :)

Dear Balkees,
 
There is a downloadable PDF of, "Life in the United Kingdom", prepared by the UK Government.
 
https://tsoshop.co.uk/Life-in-the-UK/&DI=636420
 
It has hundreds of accurate, important facts about the UK. Unfortunately, itīs NOT free.
 
With the suggestion from CarmenCosta, you could make a good quiz.

I dont wish to blow my own trumpet, but if you are looking specifically for quizzes about the UK, I have made several!

Its an information gap quiz so you can split your group into 4 teams. I hope your day goes well!
