At Beaumont Lodge Primary School, we use Picture News to expose children to current affairs, discover their interests and bring the world closer to their everyday lives.
With a big, open question based on a current news story, children are encouraged to discuss, debate and form opinions. This allows schools opportunities to teach children British Values, respect, tolerance and to celebrate differences.
The Picture News documents below give parents an overview of the story our pupils have explored with focus questions for children to discuss with adults at home. This is a great way to strengthen home-school links and develop speaking, listening and vocabulary further.
