4 4.World News Anyone looking to eat their breakfast on a Trump-free Sunday will be disappointed. The face of the US president is seldom absent. The Sunday Telegraph alone carries five photographs and a cartoon of the newest occupant of the Oval Office. The Sun on Sunday also has five photos, although Trump is eclipsed by six pictures of David Beckham on a single page, ahead of his appearance on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs. Some coverage of Trump's first week in the White House is scathing. The Observer concludes that the president "cannot be trusted" on issues that affect Britain, describing him as "ignorant, prejudiced and vicious in ways that no American leader has been". It reports the case of a Yazidi woman who fled an "Isis massacre in Iraq", but was not allowed to board a flight to the US to be reunited with her husband.

6 6. Short story of the week All was quiet in Mrs Stripes literacy class until Tommy let out a blood curdling scream. TIGER! He bellowed, whilst pointing one of his many bony fingers at the polished window. Without warning, children were screaming, climbing the table and doing many more imaginable things. SILENCE! Roared Mrs Stripes at the top of her lungs. We shall leave to the town hall in an orderly fashion. Suddenly, she began to run out the school wiggling her fairly large bottom behind her. Confused they all began to run after her. After a few minutes, all the children had been rounded up and had decided to form an army in order to win this battle. Once and for all! Mrs Stripes led carrying a stick (wiggling her bottom to the marching beat) whilst all the children marched after her. As they approached the school playground Mrs Stripes took lead. She went face to face with the monster only to find out it was a toy. TOMMY! She bellowed. OOPSY DAISY!
