A free, cross-curricular news literacy project for 9 to 11-year-olds across the UK, set up by the Guardian Foundation, National Literacy Trust and PSHE Association and funded by Google. Fake news is a real problem! We live in an era of major national and international political change and disinformation. NewsWise aims to empower 9- to 11-year-olds with the skills and knowledge to navigate this confusing world. We want to help them to engage with and enjoy news, to feel confident to ask questions and to challenge misinformation, to have their own values and opinions. We want to help young people to develop a clear and authentic voice amongst their peers, in their homes, schools and wider communities. NewsWise brings together news journalists and primary literacy and PSHE specialists from the Guardian Foundation, the National Literacy Trust and the PSHE Association to provide high quality news literacy education resources, experiences and support for teachers. All these are mapped to the curriculum and the PSHE Association’s Programme of Study, with an authentic flavour of the newsroom. Thanks to funding from Google these are free for all settings teaching 9 to 11-year-olds across the UK.
