When a terrorist attack occurs, children will hear about it in a number of different ways, some of which may be inaccurate, untrue, or based on rumour or speculation. Wherever they happen, events may create feelings of personal anxiety and fear that children can find hard to articulate: giving them a context to discuss, question and express their thoughts and feelings will help them to process what has happened in a safe environment with a trusted adult.
Below is guidance from the PSHE association which we as a school follow to support children with current terrorist attacks in London and Manchester. This may help when discussing these attacks with your children at home to see the approach that the school is taking. I hope this is helpful.
