The form time opportunity

Improving SMSC and literacy in form time

Whether you have five minutes or 30, form time is a great opportunity to provide thought-provoking activities that get your students engaged with the world around them, while developing critical thinking skills.

The Dayis an online news resource that can be used to make the most of form time. It is IWB friendly, with balanced stories that explain the issues, stimulate debate and provide glossaries of difficult terms. All of the activities will help you develop your whole school SMSC and literacy agenda.

Register for your free, three-week trial of The Day and join the thousands of teachers saving valuable time spent on planning and researching every day.

You’ll create a login that can be used across the school for staff and pupils to access 2,000 articles and activities – written specially for classroom use and organised around the curriculum. This includes our ready-made schedule of themed activities for form time and assemblies, all contained in The Week’s Agenda.

‘A fantastic resource for supporting all areas of the curriculum and keeping staff and students in touch with current issues and debates.’ Laura Taylor, Teacher, City of London Academy
