At Belmont, we understand the importance of giving our children opportunity to learn about our world, develop independence, resilience, respect and unlock their own drive and passion for learning. Teaching the news not only provides great content and stimulus and grips children's attention, it is also something that the children can impact. It is current, happening now and so their voice is given meaning and purpose. It is our world and we all matter.
Picture News is a fantastic weekly resource used in school which enables children to read about current events, participate in debates and share their views and opinions. The topics contain a British Value focus, numerous resources to talk about as well as a child friendly newspaper. Children are given a 'Take Home' page each week so you can join in the discussion at home. You can find example copies below.
