Every week in assembly the children are shown a photograph with a 'Big Question'. The question encourages discussion and children being given the opportunity to voice their own opinions. Sometimes we use videos linked to the question and different scenarios.

The teachers then discuss the question in class and it is adapted to suit each Key Stage and year group. In  achievement assembly the children are again asked the question and they give examples of what they have spoken about and if their opinion has changed/stayed the same and why.

Picture News compliments our Personal, Social and Emotional education and also links directly to British Values. 

All children at Westfield Nursery and Primary School are encouraged to have a voice. Picture News allows us to provide depth to our rich curriculum.


On Fridays we have a gold book celebration assembly where 2 children are chosen from each class to receive a Gold book certificate in recognition of their Learning Challenge Behaviour's demonstrated in class. 

.Attendance awards are also celebrated during the assembly with the highest achieving year group being rewarded with a non-uniform day the following week.

This Weeks Question: Is it ever fair to judge others on their appearance?

The Chinese authorities have banned footballers from getting tattoos and instructed national team players, who already have tattoos, to remove them or cover them up to set a “good example for society”. A growing number of Chinese players have tattoos, including the international defender Zhang Linpeng, who has previously been told to cover up while appearing for the national team and his club, Guangzhou FC.
