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.
Turkey opened its borders for Syrian refugees to leave its territory for Europe at the end of February. So far hundreds of thousands have left Turkey. Many Syrians have fled their home country, following dangerous conditions and fighting due to the ongoing civil war there. Fife Council in Scotland has one of the highest rates of resettlement for Syrian refugees in the UK. During the increasingly unsettled situation in Syria, Fife are wanting to help more families and have said they will continue to welcome many more families this year.

- What do you think might be some of the challenges of moving to a different country?
