Story starter.

Hours and hours had passed, and she hadn’t seen a soul. The monotony of trudging through this seemingly never-ending labyrinth was tiring, and her eyelids felt heavy. The heady scent of the pine sap and earthy moss added to her lethargic state. She felt as if she could close her eyes and sleep for a thousand years. She knew she couldn’t though; being trapped in the woods when night fell wouldn't be a wise move. Making the most of the remaining daylight would be crucial, she knew.

A great sense of foreboding filled her, and she had a tight feeling in her chest. The trees around her, like sentinels protecting the gods of the forest, seemed to bear down upon her. The dense army of pine trees threatened her from every side. There was only one path forward, and she took it hesitantly, not knowing what awaited her in the distance…

Join Ant and Dec for this special event.

Speak out stay safe assembly

Join us this Friday at 9:30am for a very special virtual assembly.  

Primary school children across the UK can join Ant and Dec, David Walliams, and Sally from our Schools Service for a special assembly in partnership with the Department for Education. Featuring highlights from our hugely popular Speak out Stay safe programme, the assembly will help children understand what’s going on, why they may be feeling anxious or worried, and where to get help if they need it. 

We know that many children are struggling with increased anxiety because of the coronavirus pandemic – whether they’re missing friends, stressed about schoolwork or concerned about their family’s safety. And for parents and carers, it can be tough to start a conversation about these worries. Our assembly will help children understand the huge changes in their lives. There will even be a Q&A with Vicky Ford MP, Minister for Children and Families, featuring questions from children. 

We would love all children, including those returning to school settings and those remaining at home to join us. Visit our NSPCC Facebook page to watch the assembly and share with your class.

We hope you’ll be watching!
