The Daily What News eds return with an action-packed round-up of the site’s latest stories.
With fun games such as the latest stories in numbers and discussion topics that would engage even the most reluctant participant, Louise and Melissa return on Friday 9th March @ 11am LIVE from Glow TV’s Glasgow studio.
We think these news girls are just fab and their approach to the show is likely to be light-hearted and fun, whilst introducing some inspiring opportunities for classroom discussion and ideas about how to use the news site’s stories in school.
Here’s your chance to speak to Beaver Expert Robert Needham, Field Officer for the Scottish Beaver Trial.
Beavers became extinct in the UK 400 years ago, but now they are back in Scotland as part of a trial reintroduction, being co-ordinated by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and the Scottish Wildlife Trust in partnership.
Since May 2009, four beaver families have been reintroduced to Knapdale, near Lochgilphead in Argyll and they have been busy since then making lodges, a dam and producing kits (baby beavers). This is your chance to ask lots of questions related to beavers and their habitat and to find out the latest news from the Trial.
Roisin will be showing interesting photo footage of the beavers as well as showing you what beaver signs to look out for, just in case you want to go to Knapdale and find them for yourself.
This Glow meet is aimed at Primary and lower secondary learners.

Constable Dougie McClounie from the Scottish Crime and Drug Enforcement Agency will deliver this Glow meet looking at the key issues surrounding drug education in Scotland.He has wide range of experience including community policing and supporting young people in further and higher education. He was the drug awareness officer for Glasgow city centre and west end where he delivered a wide range of drug related presentations including inputs to all schools in the division.
Constable McClounie is now a member of the Interventions team at the SCDEA. He has a great interest in delivering drug education and awareness to support young people in making the correct choices in life. He also works in the planning teams for both Choices for Life and Shared Responsibility.
This Glow meet will be useful to all practitioners working with children and young people. The importance of effective partnership working in substance misuse education will be discussed and there will be an opportunity to ask ‘tricky’ questions.
This Glow Meet is appropriate for all early years practitioners.
Building the Curriculum 4 supports the planning, design and delivery of the curriculum in early years establishments, schools and colleges. It sets out skills for learning, life and work demonstrating how they are embedded in the experiences and outcomes.
Can we build employability skills in the early years? Should we be thinking about these within the early level? During the session we will speak to a practitioner who, in partnership with her colleagues, helps children develop the skills they need for their life now and in the future.
A key aim of this Glow Meet will be to promote discussion and to inspire practitioners to explore different approaches to skills development in the early years. Participants will have the chance to ask the panel questions and share ideas.
This is going to be arranged via the Literacy Advisors Glow group, which will be made accessible nationally.
The speaker will be Debbie Gardner of Garnock Academy who was involved in Write at Home (a project assisting writing across all sectors) and is doing some very interesting work with parents using Glow as well as transitions moderation, all of which she will speak about and answer questions on.
Please let me know if you would like to attend and whether you would prefer AM or PM? Thanks
Anytime before the 16th of June would be helpful. Look forward to hearing from you.
