    Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining

    Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining  by Ruth Kenward - 7 to 13yrs - KS2, KS3  (2m 38s)


    Theme  -  Finding positives in bad times 


    Story  -  by John Kenward (approx. 8 mins)

    It felt like Benita’s best birthday ever, until disaster struck.  As she veered off the track, speeding across the grass to join her family, her front wheel struck a large stone half buried in the grass. The impact threw her over the handlebars and she landed on her back with a sickening crunch, at the base of a tree, with the bike landing on top of her.  Inside her head, everything suddenly went dark.

    The next thing Benita knew, she was still lying on her back but she was staring up into a bright white ceiling and her head was throbbing with pain.  A nurse in a pale green and white uniform loomed over her. ‘Hello, Benita!’ she said…


    Song  -  by Ruth Kenward  

    An upbeat, positive song with a great hook, that encourages us to look for rays of hope in bad times.  Behind the clouds the sun is always shining!  (Sample on the audio player above.)


    Reflection points  -  sample

    1. What was the ‘dark cloud’ that happened in Benita’s life?
    2. What was the ‘silver lining’?
    3. Have you ever found a ‘silver lining’ in a difficult situation? 
    4. When things aren’t going well in your life, does it help if you look for the positive side? If so, how?
