As a school, we look at the Picture News. This covers various topics, covering news of what has been happening in the world around us.
Unfortunately, as we are not currently able to do a dedicated school worship, where the children would join together and learn through discussion; we have set up this page to enable parents, carers and children to access this great resource.
Each week there is a different topic for discussion along with a zip file, which contains supporting resources for you and the children to use.
