What is 'The Day'?
is a daily news-based curriculum resource that helps students link their school education to the wider world and motivate and engage them in the classroom, bringing learning to life and designed to explain, teach and inform.
Each school day three new stories are written that aim to explain current affairs and to highlight the main issues behind a story and every Friday there's a weekly news quiz.
The stories are:
- Fresh, current and headline news
- Placed in context
- Provided with discussion points and class activities
- Supported with further reading, links and videos
Most schools use The Day as a topical and engaging discussion starter for form time and a time-saving resource in lessons accross the curriculum.
