Wellbeing Wednesday – Meet The Rock

It’s time to meet the eleventh and final hero of our Mental Health Heroes, The Rock! Not to be confused with the eyebrow raising wrestler, The Rock is here to try and deliver the final blow to The Negatron. Could this cloud of negative energy finally be about to be destroyed for good?

Just like in previous weeks, Week 11 contains ALL of your favourite Wellbeing Wednesday Resources

  • ALL NEW Animation
  • ALL NEW Comic book action to continue the story, could we have conclusive ending?
  • ALL NEW, Fully differentiated resources to download!


Take a look at the eleventh of our AMAZING animations created by Beck. Remember, ALL of our animations for this term will be available COMPLETELY FREE on YouTube and Vimeo. Don’t miss out on the action!

Digital Comic Flipbook

Each comic follows on from the end of the animation, so you can see what happens at the end of each battle and continue the story! This week, read the comic to find out if The Rock is able to deal the final blow to the NEGATRON! We guarantee that you and your class are going to LOVE the story as we begin to reach it’s conclusion.

Speak Phonics

Our ‘Speak Phonics’ scheme has been carefully planned in-house by our teacher team, bringing together many years of experience in delivering phonics! Every aspect of the scheme has been planned, designed and brought together by our amazing team!

Our scheme hopes to bring unique and engaging visuals to the children to support the teaching and learning of phonics in a systematic approach.

Fill Your Bookshelf With Phil – Nen And The Lonely Fisherman

For this week’s ‘Fill Your Bookshelf’ I’ve been reading the wonderful ‘Nen and the Lonely Fisherman’ written by Ian Eagleton and illustrated by James Mayhew. Beautifully written with wonderfully descriptive language backed up by the exquisite illustrations this book really does transport you to the ocean and carry you along the emotional rollercoaster of Nen and Ernest, the fisherman’s, relationship.

A wonderful read that comes highly recommended by Phil. Got any recommendations yourself for Phil or anyone to read? Leave a comment below on the blog!

Summer Term Madness

Who said the Summer Term is easy?! SO MUCH TO DO! Hannah has written a new blog which is very relatable and has lots of top tips to help you with getting through the last few weeks of term.

Tuffy Tuesdays

We’ve got two more fabulous Tuffy Tuesday’s entries for you to feast your eyes on! The first tray is such a great tray to have set up in your provision as it is so interactive, and the children can really get stuck in!

We love the simplicity of the second tray, allowing children to explore cutting with different scissors and develop their scissor skills!

Do you have an exciting Tuff Tray that you’d like to submit? Then click the button below for a chance to have your Tuff Tray featured on our Instagram page (and be the envy of all your teacher friends).
