This service is worth having a go at. You can build a class webpage easily, set games and activities and assess quizzes. There is a free 30-day trial for teachers.

It takes a while to get used to (not totally intuitive), but once you’re up and running it’s worth the effort. There is a wealth of authoring group to join (including IB Biology and IB MYP Science), where you can add questions to a common bank and draw from the work and expertise of other teachers. The GCSE Biology and Physics and Science groups are very well resourced indeed.
Go on, have a go. At least your mob will get a different type of homework this week.
