Picture News Assemblies
Every Monday morning we start of the week with a Picture News assembly. This is always something that is topical and current from today's society. Children debate the topic as a school and give some fantastic reasons to back up their opinions. The children can then add further thoughts on post-it notes to the poster on our display that changes weekly.
We have a board in a central place in school where we pose a 'question for thought' on a regular basis. Examples of questions we have asked are:
What would you like to see added to the salad bar on a lunchtime?
What equipment would you like to see on the playground during break times?
The children enjoy giving us their feedback and seeing it being acted upon where viable.
