Share a Story

This challenge follows our #GetInTouch themed challenges by asking your family to write a story to send to somebody. TV and sports presenter Kelly Cates is here to introduce you to this task.

We want you to complete our story in your own words. You can be as creative as you like with your story. Why not add some extra characters such as a Premier League footballer, make it funny with a joke, or draw some illustrations to create a comic strip? 

Here is the story:

Harry and Mia had been kicking their football against the wall all morning.
“Right, you two!” called Mum. “Let’s go out and walk off some of that energy.”

Mia scooped up the football in her arms and the trio set off down the road. They were just about to stroll past the large house on the corner, when a loud noise made them all jump. The football dropped to the floor and as Harry bent to pick it up, his jaw dropped in surprise when he saw...

Once you have finished, we would like you to #GetInTouch by sending it to an older relative, friend or neighbour - this could be the person you have contacted in a previous challenge! Whoever it is, write something in your story that you think will make them smile! 

The story can be found in the Connecting Generations pack. This pack includes other challenges you can take part in. 


For the chance to become our Star of the Week, be in our community story or even feature on, make sure to send us a picture and tell us who you’re sending your story to. You can do this on Twitter via @PLCommunities using #PLPrimaryStars and #GetInTouch or email us at

While we want children and young people to use their initiative and to be creative with their communication, it is important they follow social distancing guidelines and stay safe.
