I am a teacher as well but in Tunisia (NORTH AFRICA).I teach English.
I sometimes face the problem you have stated and I think there is a solution for that: I always have candy bars on me. When pupils start making noise, on the spot question should be asked and who answers correctly should have a candy. Therefore, they would get used to that and would be quiet in order to be attentive enough to get the candy in the next question.
