Imagine a world without colour? This week’s story teaches us that by working together the world is a much brighter, and colourful, place.
Ethel is upset because she doesn’t have an XBox like her friend, but Mr Colourful reassures her that there are more important things in life. Mrs Caswell outlines 5 really important things we should value in life. We hear a story about two magpies that learn that stuff is not as important as their family’s health.
Ethel is proud of how she reacted in a kind way to finding rubbish left on the beach. Mrs Caswell tells a story about an act of kindness that changed the lives of many animals - for the better!
This week Ethel tries something new and discovers that she loved it! Mr Colourful explains that unless we try new things we could be missing out! And Mrs Caswell reads a story about Cefin the koala, who didn’t want to try anything new. Then, one day, Something terrible happens, and Cefin has no choice but to embrace something new.
Ethel gets a warm fuzzy feeling when she does something special for her Nanna. She and Mr Colourful discuss how kind words and actions make us feel so great. But how unkind words and actions make us all feel cold and prickly. The Warm Fuzzies and the Cold Pricklies is a story read by Mrs Caswell about a village who nearly lost all its happiness because of an evil troll.
We all know that a problem shared is a problem halved! But do we know that small problems can grow into enormous ones if ignored? Mr Colourful teaches Ethel about the importance of talking, and Mrs Caswell reads a story about a lady who didn’t face up to her problem at all! Be warned, this story DOESN’T have a happy ending!
