Love the clever conceit and sense of play brought to information literacy in QUESTION EVERYTHING … timely exploration around issues like fake news and verified information. Highly recommended!
August - Non-fiction Book of the Month: A stunning and well-constructed book that provides everything a KS2 child needs to know about spotting fake news, discerning facts from fiction or opinion, identifying hyperbole, and being rational about statistics. Not only a good buy for the school library, but this is also an excellent resource for PSHE in years 5&6 and ideal to spark off discussions, independent research, and non-fiction writing.
Already a huge fan of Real-life Mysteries/Disasters by the same authors, I'm not surprised that this little book is packed with relevance and presented in an incredibly engaging way. Just what non-fiction should be. Brilliant.
This would be a brilliant resource for any key stage 2 class to use to support a sequence of English sessions; IT lessons on safe use of online resources and social media and PSHE.
