EYFS & KS1 literacy resources for Ed Vere's 'How to be a Lion'

This Resource Pack uses the inspiring new picture book by Ed Vere, ‘How To Be a Lion’, to spark ideas for Literacy, Citizenship or PSHE discussion around the need to belong, individual differences, celebrating uniqueness, and working together with friends.

Its objective is for the children in your class to understand that everyone is different and that difference is something to be celebrated.

The lessons included here provide starting points for children to think about the significance of difference in their own lives, and also to develop an understanding of the point of view of people who may experience life in a very different way.

We can’t wait to hear about your experiences and outcomes using this wonderful new book – and remember, the more different they are from one-another, the better.
