I’ve just been told about ‘The Day’ by a friend of mine – thank you John.
At one level The Day is another blog but it is cleverly organised and presented in a consistent and ‘child friendly’ way (without being condescending).
The Day provides a summary of the news in a way that is digestible to schools and is lined to both curriculum foci and to cross curricular themes. As well as an RSS feed there is an email service and a printable PDF service.
The service is by subscription so I guess you’ll need to be sure that you will use it but given that it’s a really difficult job to get daily news to pupils this could be something that is VERY worthwhile.
