this week picture news

As part of our British Values and SMSC focus, we subscribed in January 2023 to participate in Picture News.

Teaching Resources for Assemblies 

Each week, through Picture News, the children look at a current news story and a thought-provoking question. Time is spent in class discussing and debating this question or world issue.  We ensure all children feel that their opinions and thoughts have been shared and listened to.

Picture news is designed to provide opportunities for children to learn from our world and develop respect for other’s beliefs, feelings and faith. We also spend time linking this with our School and British Values.

To support their exploration and discussion, we also make the Picture News Newsletter available for all children, to enable the children to discuss this at home if they wish.

Picture News works closely with us keeping in touch with ideas and suggestions, they provide support in ensuring that we are resourced well in order to teach our pupils about current affairs and the world around them.
