This activity uses the idea of puzzles to help children think about what makes them unique, and the role they play in your school community.

Following lockdown, your pupils and staff may feel like their school community is a bit fragmented.

It is natural, in the circumstances, for some people to feel slightly anxious about returning to school or coping with the changes to school routine.

These activities, along with the accompanying assembly, should support the children to feel a sense of belonging and understand their place in the school, hopefully bringing a renewed feeling of unity and community along with positivity about being back at school.
