“I wish I knew about it sooner! It’s such a fantastic resource, very current and relevant. There is so much learning which could stem just from one article. Before you teach anything, go to the website first.”

“This resource will not only save time but ensure pupils’ thinking skills and help them to become more critical thinkers. The questions provided will support teachers and over time enable them to be more creative in their questioning.”

Kathy Whitford, Acting Deputy & English/Curriculum Lead, Merdon Junior School

“An invaluable resource for exposing young minds to current affairs in an accessible balanced way, making children critically assess their opinions and world views.”

Student feedback

SEN educators

“Full of useful links, pictures, facts and thoughts based on the news of the moment. And it's linked to the National Curriculum!"

Rebecca Hairsine, KS2 Teacher, The Harbour School

“The Day Explorer is ideal for us as it caters for our SEN learners. The themed resources make it easier to find material which is accessible for our learners and relevant to upcoming events which embed EDI and Citizenship. The resources for Fairtrade Fortnight were very useful - we set up a game of Fairtrade Lotto! We used some of the themed resources for Women’s History Month. I would thoroughly recommend The Day Explorer to other SEN educators.”

Barry Poole, Educational Facilitator, National Star

International schools

It can be used by teachers in their day-to-day teaching, as well as for homework and school assemblies. Explorer provides an additional resource which supports students’ researching, promotes independent learning and develops open-mindedness.”

School groups

“I absolutely love working with The Day Explorer. It is a great resource to engage young people with current affairs and to encourage those reluctant readers. There’s also a huge section on British Values, which is fantastic as it is a huge Ofsted push at the moment.”

“The Day Explorer is a really well-designed publication that is thought provoking. An excellent vehicle for promoting discussion and high quality language in schools. A must use!”
