NewsWise learning journey
The NewsWise learning journey takes pupils through each of the NewsWise themes in order: they first develop an understanding of what news is, then the skills to question and challenge what they read, see and hear in the media, and finally put these skills into practice by producing their own news reports.

Theme 1

Understanding the news

Theme 2

Navigating the news

Theme 3

Reporting the news
