Project Information

The award winning Irish News Critical Literacy Project brings an invigorating 8 weeks of activities that offer a different way to challenge the knowledge and understanding of young readers while introducing them to the wonderful world of newspapers in conjunction with the Irish News.

We know our primary & secondary school pupils are fascinated by the news, Trump’s Presidency, Brexit and sports. The news can provide a great way for them to improve their reading and writing, as well as their talking and listening skills.

KEY STAGE 2 & 3 FRIENDLY CONTENT

The School Edition is a 64 page newspaper, made up of content from the past seven days in The Irish News. The news is filtered to make it appropriate for a younger audience to ensure that pupils engage with and enjoy the project.
