The Week Junior
AD/ Didn’t she do SO well?! (video below)
I think I could have a mini-journalist in the making (no surprise to those of you who know my background in media) which is also why we are so pleased to be working with the award-winning and fastest growing children’s magazine The Week Junior.
I must admit, with the news in 2020 so saturated with ‘scary stuff’, sometimes we avoid talking about it or have to switch the telly/radio off as it’s overwhelming for grown-ups let alone the little people. Which is why having The Week Junior delivered weekly means that my daughter now has access to news from around the globe, explained in a way that 8-14 year olds find engaging whilst being informative, relevant and exciting and fun, too (even the 16yo has been seen checking it out!)
Currently, if you click this link, you get the first SIX WEEKS, FREE.
Plus, they’ve got a brilliant Activity Hub online, packed with things to do and create, which is going to be so useful during this half-term (and going forward) what with all the local restrictions in place.
Let me know if you try any of the activities on their hub, we’re looking forward to making the hot chocolate and den!
How do you explain what’s going on in the world with your children? I’d love to know what your thoughts are. We all want to bring up a free-thinking generation that are aware of what’s going on around, right? And having those conversations, in an unpatronising, safe and inspiring way, is surely a step in the right direction, don’t you think?
