03 May 2022 Share

Tuesday 24th May, 10am - 11am

It’s never been easier to access the news; TV, radio, billboards, newspapers and endlessly buzzing on to the screens in our pockets. But with more and more news available, it’s hard to know what to trust. Where do stories come from? What’s real news and what’s fake? What should we do if the news confuses us, or even upsets us? 

Join journalist and presenter Nick Sheridan for an interactive event that will help kids and young people understand the NEWS - REAL and FAKE! With practical tips to help kids spot fake news and top tips for budding journalists, Nick draws on his expertise to show kids how to navigate the ever-confusing world of news in a humorous and reassuring way - and WATCH OUT for the surprise stories! 

Nick is an award-winning journalist and television presenter, with a decade of experience working in broadcast media. 

The cost of the event is £11 and includes a copy of Nick’s book Breaking News. Please book via this Ticketsource LINK to sign up to this this event. You will receive the webinar link and will be given a question about where to send a copy of the book. Please note spaces are limited to 100 schools.
