The Hueys in the New Jumper
This resource ‘The Hueys‘ by Oliver Jeffers uses a reading of the book to explore individuality and to reflect on why this is important and should be celebrated. Children are asked to listen to the story and consider how the Hueys’ behaviour changed during the book. They then get to design their own Huey with a hat and jumper of their choice and explain how it feels to be accepted and be able to express your individuality.
This resource explains that a shield often includes a coat of arms, which is traditionally unique to an individual person, a family, a city or a country and are often seen on buildings, gates and flags. Pupils are encouraged to think about the things that are special to them before designing a shield with a coat of arms for either themselves, their family or school. It will encourage pupils to think about their identity or that of their family or school.

How to be a Bucket Filler
This resource based on ‘Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?‘ by Carol McCloud explores how words and actions can impact people positively and negatively through the concept that every person has an invisible bucket, which can be filled through kind actions and words.
