Picture News

At Great Kimble School we understand the importance of giving our children opportunity to learn about our world, develop independence, resilience, respect and unlock their own drive and passion for learning.


We believe in giving children a voice and encouraging them to use it to impact things they are inspired by or feel passionately about. Picture News is a fantastic weekly resource which enables children to read about current events, participate in debates and share their views and opinions. You can find the weekly resources and activity packs on this page. Each week the packs contain a British Value focus, numerous resources to talk about as well as a child friendly newspaper.


Teaching the news not only provides great content and stimulus and grips children's attention, it is also something that the children can impact. It is current, happening now and so their voice is given meaning and purpose. It is our world and we all matter.
