I hope you enjoy this music quiz activity. Hopefully members will recognise some or all of the songs and be able to sing along or hum the tunes and tap their feet.
Here are some questions to get the discussion going but, of course, you may think of other or additional supplementary questions to ask, which is great.
The CST Blog aims to be dynamic and give ideas which will hopefully spur you on to try creating your own activities.
If you do have any ideas and wish to share them in these pages, I would love to hear from you.
