Picture News can support you with the personal development of the children you teach.
Extend your curriculum beyond the academic, technical or vocational. Give children opportunities to develop learning further through news stories that inspire them. Allow them to discover talents and interests through the broad coverage. How can you know you are interested in something if you don’t even know it exists?
If they want to make a difference, they have to have the confidence to speak out.
They must develop resilience. If at first, they do not succeed, develop ideas further, do not give up!
Expose children to a range of current issues including political, religious, cultural, environmental, social, moral, spiritual.
Make British Values relevant and meaningful and develop links between personal, school and community values.
Allow children to demonstrate respect and tolerance. Children often can explain how they should behave or what they should say but what better way to teach respect than if they are discussing something they actually care about?
