Picture News – Competition Winners!

Our competition winners…

Lyndhurst Primary School

We recently ran a competition to find out more about how Picture News is used in your school. We were overwhelmed with the amount and standard of the applications.Here is our winning entry…

“Within our school Picture News is a big part of both the children and adults school week. It links very closely to our SMSC work. Our Picture News Board is situated next to the SMSC board. It is an interactive board for the children and is updated every week. It is used by the children to read the newspaper, the question and share/express their opinions and thoughts on that week’s question. The children can add these to post it notes on the wall during dinner times and break times. The children have a Picture News Assembly every week which they really like, all the year groups mix up within the rows to stimulate discussion. We also have a team of HLTAs within school (5) who visit classes throughout the week and focus on the classroom based part of Picture News pack. We send the Picture News ‘at home’ out via social media weekly too.”
