Picture News

What is Picture news?

Learning from the world around us! Each week  a current news story is chosen and an image is provided alongside a thought-provoking question to get you talking at home.

Teach children current affairs through Picture News. A pack full of teaching resources can be accessed on our school website for you as a parent/carer to use at home.

The resources are designed to provide opportunities for children to learn from our world and develop respect for other’s beliefs, feelings and faiths. They encourage exploration, discussion, challenge and inspire children to learn!

These resources are a fantastic way to further explore our schools core Christian values which are Community, Service, Justice, Creation, Friendship, Thankfulness, Peace, Hope and Endurance
