News activities for PSHE

Try our free activities for PSHE!

Each week, we publish news activities that many schools embed within their PSHE lessons. Designed by teachers, these sessions help students think critically in an age of fake news and tackle the big stories in depth. Subscribe to receive yours below.

These activities for PSHE cover specific criteria within the PSHE Association's Programme of Study for Key Stage 2 / Key Stage 3:

Living in the wider world

Our resources help students discuss and debate topic issues, developing their knowledge of national and international problems and events that affect them and others (L1 / L3). They help students express their thoughts and opinions in an appropriate way and encourage them to support their own views with reasoning (R10 / R3).


A focus on listening encourages students to see and respect others' points of view before making their own judgments (L8 / L1). Activities support students to be sceptical about media stories and value the importance of evidence. This enables them to recognise and challenge stereotypes (R16 / L7).
