At Glade Hill we use a resource called 'Picture News' that aims to develop children's knowledge of the world around them and current events, alongside their oracy and discussion skills.
Each week the children have a child-friendly image shared with them, in class or in an assembly, and have opportunities to discuss the 'Picture News' with their classmates and teachers.
Past themes have included images of the floods in Pakistan, toys that reflect our diverse culture and about trusting what we see online. Please see examples of the resources on this page.
Key questions for discussion in class and assembly have included 'Can you ever trust what you see online?', 'Can animals provide the same support as our friends?' and 'Should children be allowed to earn money from creating and sharing videos?'
Each theme and picture is also linked to a 'British Value' including 'Individual Liberty', 'Respect' and 'The Rule of Law'.
The children really enjoy discussing the different images and are continuing to improve on their ability to share their ideas with others, a key life skill.
We can't wait to see how much they will benefit from this in the future!
