STEVE TEST PAGE FOR FYI, the weekly news show from Sky Kids



This week, we ask whether the £100 billion high-speed railway HS2 will be good value for money. Also, we explain that the coronavirus is not as scary as some would have you believe, and talk to nine-year-old Jasmine about what it’s like to be put into quarantine. Also Braydon meets one of Britain’s brightest young tennis players.

FYI is presented entirely by kids and aims to answer your big questions about news, current affairs and politics.

It will also give you the inside scoop on all the news everyone’s talking about in the playground, from entertainment, sport, TV and computer games to what’s trending online.

But that’s not all. Every fortnight FYI will host Junior Prime Minister’s Questions, where you get to ask the country’s leader your very own questions! You can send us your questions below, and we’ll contact your parent or carer if we’d like to shortlist yours.

How to watch the show

Tune in to FYI on Sky News at 10.30am and 4.30pm every Saturday and 10.30am every Sunday and on Sky Kids platforms. Each new episode will also be here every Tuesday. Why not ask your teacher if you can watch it in school…

Tips for spotting ‘Fake News’!

Following the FYI report about Fake News, we’ve rundown just what you need to look out for to steer clear of Fake News.

  1. Is the news source or site trustworthy?
  2. Can you find the story on other news sites you trust?
  3. Who is the author? Are they a known and reliable journalist?
  4. Does the writer list their sources?
  5. Does the story justify the headline? Or, is it misrepresenting the actual story?
  6. Don’t be fooled by a joke!
  7. Check the facts in the article.
  8. Remember, pictures – and even videos – can lie too.
  9. And, you can’t always trust search engines (or friends!)
