Wishes for Our World is a free new teacher’s resource for you to download and use, based on a moving letter written by Michael Morpurgo, former children’s Laureate and ‘War Horse’ author.
The letter is from a grandfather to a granddaughter about the world he loves and wants to protect from climate change and has inspired a beautiful 5 minute film starring Jeremy Irons.
Created for KS2 English classes, ages 9-11, the resource encourages children to explore the issue of climate change in an inspiring new way. It’s packed full of creative activities and discussion ideas that will get pupils thinking, talking and writing.
