British Values and Picture News

British Values and Picture News
Learning from the world around us! 
Each week a current news story is chosen accompanied by an image and a thought-provoking question to explore during assembly time. We use the Picture News resources that are sent weekly as a base and adapt them to suit the needs our children.
Each news story is  linked to British Values and we also make links (where relevant) to our school values. 
We have also begun to learn about Children's Rights as detailed in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. Our school council are leading on this in school and we are also focusing on children's rights in assemblies too.
See below for our assembly timetable this term and an assembly example.
Currently, we are meeting twice a week in phases - Lower School (EYFS and KS1) and Upper School (KS2) in a well ventilated hall due to COVID-19 restrictions.
