What is Picture News?

It encourages children to engage with current affairs alongside worldwide news stories and provides them opportunities to learn about and discuss what is happening these within assemblies, class and at home.
Have a look at the "Things to talk about at home" section, which supports parents and guardians to join in on the discussion!
