Welcome back to the APN NiE programme and to our first page of the year!
We also have two newspaper study options coming up as part of our programme:
Dive in and Read (April 26- May 17 Mon, Wed, Thurs) – a literacy based programme based on a serial story
2010 Commonwealth Games(Sept20-23, Oct 11-18, Mon-Thurs).
Keep an eye out for posters and order forms in your school.
One exciting addition to the year is the launch of the e-Edition – a digital replica of the newspaper with enhanced capabilities – that can be used in computer labs, on interactive whiteboards and at computer stations. We’re delighted to have received so many e-Edition orders, with multiple licenses for the whole classes or for a single teacher license. Talk to the NiE liaison teacher at your school to find out more or contact your local APN NiE coordinator.
In response to requests for regular current affairs for Years 3-6 we have added Nikki’s News Diary complete with a teacher-led Discussion Board and an interactive component where students submit a response for a chance to be published online. Be the first to see your students’ work posted for others to read. It’s a unique fun way to get connected keep up with the play!
This week’s topic is: I am a citizen. The concept of what a ‘citizen’’ is has changed in recent times. It no longer simply refers to the acquisition of legal status to live in a country or the rights or privileges people are entitled to.
