THE DAY - NEWS TO OPEN MINDS

https://theday.co.uk/

We launched The Day for schools and colleges to help explain current affairs in short articles written and illustrated with great care by our own staff writers and graphic artists; to be a serious briefing service for everyone, not just the people at the top of the pyramid; to help replace the conversation many do not have at home; to pick out the underlying issues that are shaping the world; and to help readers ask good questions rather than believe they have the answers.

Our mission is to help students think about what they can see and hear around them in the news day by day; to learn to make the link between this and what they are studying and to understand the relevance and importance of knowledge; to think for themselves and talk about everything, to debate, discuss and research; to grow in confidence and find their own voice; and to become teachers themselves in their peer groups and families and among friends.” (The Day)

The news on this site is aimed at teenagers but with forward planning may also suitable for upper KS2 students. Whilst the site displays a topical article freely available to read on the homepage, The Day is a subscription news service and this is required to access the wealth of information available on its site.

Primary School Teaching Resources

 

The 123HUB is a FREE resource bank and teaching community for primary school teachers. It has been designed to assist teachers in finding good quality online resources. Our aim is to take the effort and guesswork out of finding the best online resources that are available for the primary school curriculum. All of the resources on the 123HUB have been hand picked by teachers.

 

Now over 2400 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for October 2019 is Animation!

 

Animation. Using animation in the classroom is certainly an exciting advance in education technology. Animation allows children the opportunity to be really creative in designing their own comic strips, stories, movies and much more. They can use stop-motion, or computer animation to create amazing stories and games, or they could simply use a pencil and paper to create a basic flip-book animation. Whatever method is chosen, animation is a fantastic way to engage children in their learning.

We currently have over 40 super themed websites on offer; they primarily embrace the subjects of Computing, Art & Design and English but could effectively be used in support of other subjects, across the whole curriculum.  Collectively, the resources include advice, tutorials, workshops, examples, software choices and much more besides. They comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities, illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively underpin this fascinating and engaging topic.

 

 

 

 

Halloween. As Halloween also falls in October, in addition to our main featured monthly theme above, we also include ten great Halloween resources. The resources include: activities, games, word searches and more, which teachers may find really useful.

 

 

 

 

The featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our great 'Creative Writing' resources coming in October 2019!

 

 

 


Recently Archived Themes

 

Our exciting new theme for September 2019 was ‘Food Chains and Habitats’. This topic explores how plants and animals get their energy and where they may be located. All living things need food in order to give them the energy required to flourish and a food chain reveals exactly how each living thing gets its food and also illustrates just exactly what might be eating what!

We have 36 super themed websites on offer; they include resources that are suitable for KS1 and KS2 and embrace the subjects of Science and Geography. Collectively, the resources cover:  how food chains work, what they consist of, what is eating what and why, as well as where on the planet animals and plants may be found and how they manage to live there. As usual, the themed resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, hands-on activities illustrations and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will effectively support this great topic.
