BBC News – Wind farms outstrip nuclear power

BBC News – Wind farms outstrip nuclear power.

And finally on this collection of resources is a BBC news story from earlier in 2014 that shows when wind famrs outstripped nuclear power. The story does make it clear that 8 of the UK’s nuclear reactors were offline at the time, but it’s still an interesting article. I am playing with making it a literacy resource, as a laminated article and skim and scan questions at the bottom.

BBC News – The element that causes arguments.


The latest in the BBC’s series of articles looking at various elements. I’ve been printing these out, editing them into a format suitable for students and laminating them as A3. Handed out to Key Stage 3 students and used to practice literacy ideas such as skimming for information and scanning for detailed facts.
