Resources for International

International Picture News is a weekly news resource created specifically for our English-speaking international schools. Our weekly primary pack is created for children aged 5 – 11. The resources are designed to be thought-provoking, leading to discussions and debates. We place a great deal of emphasis on learning from the news, as well as about it.

Picture News can be used to inspire and engage children in relevant, meaningful and real-life learning. Read more

What's in a pack?

  • A vibrant A2 poster with a big, open question based on a current news story. The questions encourage children to discuss, debate and form opinions. This allows schools opportunities to teach children respect, tolerance and to celebrate differences.
  • A Picture News Paper containing four stories from all around the world. Older children often enjoy accessing and reading these independently. We encourage our schools to engage with us and sometimes our paper includes a report from you!
  • Picture News at Home giving an overview of the story with focus questions for children to discuss with adults at home. This is a great way to strengthen home-school links, engage your communities and develop speaking, listening and vocabulary further.
  • A main assembly, explaining the story in detail, with further open questions and opportunities for discussion and debate.
  • Age appropriate resources and activity ideas to explore further.
  • An online area giving you access to past assemblies, an assembly PowerPoint, training, teaching ideas and more!
  • Key vocabulary, video links and website links.

We really enjoy how relevant the resources are to current events. It has sparked curiosity in classrooms and opened up lots of discussion. The images are quick and easy to use. They are relevant for all age groups
