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 2300 quality teaching resources available!

 

 Our featured theme for May 2019 is Local History!

 

 

Local History. As May is Local and Community History Month, we thought that Local History would make a great featured theme for this month. Local history is an enjoyable topic for children to study as takes in a locale that may be familiar to them and it also lends itself to many great local school trips. We have 26 great local history themed websites on offer. The resources cover: local history studies in general, history in specific localities, how to begin a local history study, Local and Community History Month and more besides.

The resources comprise of a mixture of: information, facts, research, ideas for hands-on activities, illustrations, images and video clips, as well as some detailed planning - each of which will successfully support this very interesting local historical theme.

 

 

 

 

 

The Featured theme is updated monthly during the academic year. Watch out for our great Art and Design resources, coming in June 2019!
