News 

Picture news is a great way to explore news topics at a child's level.  It gives them an opportunity to think about the wider world and what is happening within it.  It gives children a moral question to think about and there are no right or wrong answers.  It is a fantastic resource to use.  We subscribe to it in school so the children are used to doing it.  Each week they provide a child friendly newspaper which is attached below.  Also attached is the questions and some work to go alongside it.  This will be updated each week that it is produced.
