One Big Jigsaw

You can both hear and read ‘One Big Jigsaw’ here.

This is a wonderfully positive and empowering song about how we all have a place in this world, and how we should work together.

It works as a companion piece to the Eco-School songs of ‘Spaceship Earth’ and could be counted as fulfilling the ‘Global Perspectives’ topic. However, it  has a wider use even than this, and would be great both in an multi-ethnic school, but also in one where children have little experience of those from different backgrounds and cultures.

Anyone who has read it will realise that this song is inspired by Babette Cole’s wonderful ‘That’s Why’ picture book; and anyone who has not should get on and read it! Find it here.

Like one big jigsaw, it’s you and it’s me

All fit together, so now can you see

All have a purpose

All have a role

All of us needed

To make this World whole


Like one big jigsaw, with no piece the same

We are all different, but links in a chain

All have a colour

Hair, eyes, and skin

Everyone different

But we all fit in


Like all the notes

That make up a song

Put them together

We all sing along

A musical jigsaw

A magical sound

Making the World go round


Like one big jigsaw that covers the globe

Family, friends, people we don’t yet know

We are connected

We play our part

We altogether

Give this World it’s heart


Like all the notes

That make up a song

Put them together

We all sing along

A musical jigsaw

A magical sound

Making the World go round

Making the World go round

Making the World go round
