We Are Heroes – Free Mini Magazine

The Storytime team are extremely proud to be collaborating on a prestigious project with Queen Mary University of London, with the creation of the We Are Heroes mini magazine.

Each edition contains carefully chosen stories that have parallels to experiences of lockdown that children could be facing – such as staying at home or protecting yourself – with additional activities produced in consultation with a children’s mental health expert.

We hope it gives children a creative way of processing the current situation they find themselves in.

We will be adding a new edition of We Are Heroes to this page for 6 months from October through to March, they are free for anybody to download, read and share.

We Are Heroes is part of an extremely important research project funded by The British Academy that aims to mitigate the educational, social and mental health impacts of Covid-19 on children.

With that in mind we would be extremely grateful if you could complete an optional survey before you download the magazine  – we do hope that you are happy to do this – the survey has been put together by Queen Mary University of London, and there is a link to it here.
