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. 

Comic Relief has announced that from 2021 its red noses will be plastic-free for the first time. The new noses will be made from bagasse, a natural by-product of sugar cane, and take more than 18 months to create! The charity, which “strives to create a just world free from poverty”, made the change after it received letters and emails from the children of Fourlanesend Community Primary School asking them to create a plastic-free version of the nose to help reduce plastic waste.

 

Things to talk about at home… 

  • Have you ever bought or worn a red nose? What did you do with it after the fundraising event/day? 

  • What do you know about Comic Relief?

  • Can you think of any alternatives to the red noses?
