Last week students learnt in an assembly about Fake News how important it is to use skills and knowledge learnt at school from subjects such as History, Geography, Science, English, Media Studies and Maths to question and understand the news. Today an excellent news article in the BBC explores how the British media have received flack for their reporting of the Finsbury Park terrorist and hate crime attack. A useful YouTube video lasting just 3 minutes gives you some much needed advice on how to spot Fake News.
