Weekly Challenge: Become a lockdown quiz master

3 Mar 2021

Authors Alex Bellos and Ben Lyttleton encourage children to write a quiz to help boost their mood

The Premier League is continuing to support families and teachers in lockdown by providing free, weekly home-learning activities.

Suitable for five to 11-year-olds, the new Premier League Primary Stars Weekly Challenges have a theme of health and wellbeing, and are supported by curriculum-linked resources.

Create your own quiz

Authors of the Football School series, Alex Bellos and Ben Lyttleton, are encouraging children to write their own quizzes on whichever topic they like during lockdown.

Quizzes are a great way to have fun and learn something new.

"We're both massive fans of quizzes, they help us learn new facts," says Lyttleton.

"So, this week, we want you to come up with your very own quiz. It could be about football but it doesn't have to be.

"We can’t wait to see what you come up with."

The pair also share top tips for creating a quiz, including making the answers multiple choice and not too difficult for those taking part.
