Picture News - information for parents

For the past two academic years, Greswold has been using the Picture News publication as a platform for children to explore and discuss some very pertinent modern day topics and to help them learn through the world around them.     


Each newsletter is introduced to the children during a Monday assembly through the stimulus of an image and question.  The children then find out more about the topic by reflecting and discussing it further using additional resources, in their allocated class assembly later that week.  Resources are tailored for EYFS, primary and secondary aged children with relevant and meaningful links to British Values and supporting pupils' personal development. The subjects help to give our curriculum more context and promote the use of spoken language. 


This week, Picture News has sent out a very useful guide for parents so they are familiar with the publication whilst also offering guidance on how to tackle sensitive news stories with children and young people.  Please see the picture gallery for more details along with a few themes explored last half term.  The following link can be used to access the Picture News website.
