Climate Change and Environmentalism

As part of the Everything is Connected season in partnership with the Cultural Programme at the University of Oxford, The Story Museum has collaborated with three of the UK’s top children’s authors to imagine a brighter future. Leading writers Patience Agbabi, Piers Torday and Sita Brahmachari have each created a short story that shows their visions of the future.

Download the stories below, together with the accompanying learning packs, and get your KS2 and KS3 students writing short stories of their own!

There's also an additional resource with links to a video and learning resource in which academics from the University of Oxford invite you to explore the natural world on your doorstep to discover how ‘everything is connected’.

Oral stories from around the world

For these resources, we have selected particularly effective oral stories from our 1001 Stories Collection. These stories come from a range of traditions and cultures, telling ancient and wise truths about humankind.

The accompanying resource packs explore key themes in PSHE and English areas of study in the National Curriculum for England for KS1 and KS2. They can be easily adapted to courses in other areas.
