The Starfish Story

We’ve created some resources to use in your classrooms to tell the story of The Starfish. The story aims to show that if each person commits to doing a small act to help them collectively we can make a big difference to the world.

There are so many things that we all love about our world. What things are really special to you? What would you like to ‘Show your Love’ for? Use this PowerPoint and/or the Home Learning Activity to think about and discuss this, then ‘Show the Love’ by making some fabulous bunting to hang up in your home (or near your window). A great way to share and celebrate what you most love about our world. Your bunting could include a rainbow- lots of people are posting rainbows at the moment to make people who pass by smile.

Nature Treasure Hunt

Create your own nature treasure hunt! If you’ve had a go at our Walking Bingo now go on to draw your own.  All you have to do is draw 10 things that you would like to spot on your daily trip out of the house and see how many you can find. Or make a record of the things you have seen. One of our friends at the Pears Foundation sent us through an example a family sent her. Take and look and be inspired. We love the things the children had noted – a person with a shopping bag sounds familiar to us all just now.

The World and Bunting

The World and Bunting (PowerPoint)

A wonderful chance for children to think about what they love about the world, and what charities have been doing to help protect the world. In thinking about how we all live together and what we care about, link partners work together to create a shared piece of bunting to show all that they love about the world. The completed pieces of bunting can be used to create a beautiful display showing caring and love for the world.
