FYI News Club @ Your School
What are FYI News Clubs?
All resources needed are provided to set up these 30-minute extra-curricular clubs, with no preparation needed by the teachers who run them. There are three simple steps to every FYI News Club.
STEP 1: Watch FYI
Watch the current episode of FYI: For Your Info, available here.
Download the accompanying discussion sheet to support your students to discuss the serious, fascinating and silly news items presented in the show. And, to develop their ‘Social Media Savvy’ skills to recognise misinformation with ‘Fake News or Fact?’
Let us know the news stories your FYI News Club want investigated. Contact Soji, our Schools Engagement Co-ordinator via email
