This week on FYI: For Your Info, the team ask – do you feel safe walking to school? We join pupils in Birmingham who face a journey through a crime hotspot everyday. Plus, we visit an FYI News Club and ask if we get enough of a break from the stresses of school. We also have a special report from the Junior Theatre Festival.
Next week on FYI, we have a special report from Isabella Signs who’s on a mission to teach sign language to everyone. Plus, we’ll be marking World Refugee Week and hearing from an FYI News Club member from Uganda, reporting on the refugee situation in her country.
