Children learn more effectively when there is a context that gives a reason or a purpose to what is being learnt along with opportunities to apply that learning. Journalism supports learning through developing a range of skills and qualities that can be applied right across the curriculum:
Being able to listen to others
Asking the right questions
Considering both sides of an argument
Presenting a balanced argument
Expressing a point of view
Children have a clear purpose for their learning, it's engaging and fun!
