Picture News


Please see this weeks Picture News below.

Picture News highlights current news stories happening around the world. We make every effort to look at these within class, but they are also useful to discuss at home to keep children informed about interesting and relevant news articles. Children are able to relate to them as they are displayed in a child-friendly way. 

School nativity plays and musical concerts have taken place in various formats this year, with some schools hosting events entirely online, others taking a hybrid approach and some even opting for performances outdoors. Health minister, Edward Argar, has said festive plays in school are “important to young people who’ve had a rough time” during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Things to talk about at home…

  • Did you take part in a school play or concert this year? Was it online or in person? If you
    have experiences of both, which do you prefer?
  • Do you enjoy performing in front of others in general?
  • Do the adults you live with enjoy watching you perform?
