Wellbeing Wednesday is BACK!
That’s right, Wellbeing Wednesday is back as our Wellbeing Flock have returned! We want to give you as much time to get prepared for teaching this scheme in September, so our Scheme Overview, Teacher Guide and Display Pack will be available to download… now!
This 12-week teaching overview is a great way to get an early preview of our exciting, brand new Wellbeing Wednesday pack for the new term! Come and see what we have planned for the next 12 weeks, the characters the children will meet, the locations they will be travelling to, and the wellbeing focus for each week.
Our Wellbeing Wednesday display pack is jam-packed with resources. Giving you everything you could need to create an eye-catching and meaningful whole school or class display.
If you’re stuck for display space, simply use the included weekly focus banner to create a mini door display with the current week’s Wellbeing Bird character, focus label and egg quote.
Create a display that the children can refer to throughout the 12 weeks and remember the skills they are learning along the way!
This teaching guide is a great way to get an early preview of our exciting, brand new Wellbeing Wednesday pack for the term and learn how to get the best out of our Wellbeing Wednesday scheme.
Come and see what we have planned for the next 12 weeks, the characters the children will meet, the locations they will be travelling to, and the wellbeing focus for each week.
Weeks 1-4 will then be available to download from 29th August, allowing you to get ahead with the planning and preparation! Just like last Autumn, the birds are located on different parts of the planet, and each week our mystery egg visits their homeland where they help to teach the egg a new wellbeing skill each week, as it soaks up a whole load of wellbeing wisdom over the course of 12 weeks!
- Each week, you will be treated to a wonderful animation and eBook which have been lovingly crafted by our team of graphic designers. We’ve made some new tweaks to the animations and eBooks so that they are even better than before! And just like our Mental Health Heroes, each animation will be COMPLETELY FREE TO VIEW!
- To support your teaching, you will be able to download a weekly teaching guide, display resources and task cards.
- To follow on from your teaching, children can complete the weekly journal page and colouring activity.
And for the first time for our Wellbeing Flock, these resources will now be differentiated to truly provide you the exact resources you need for your class. These resources will be available in EYFS, Key Stage 1, Lower Key Stage 2 and Upper Key Stage 2! In addition to this, you can also access a huge display pack for the classroom.
We also want to see your #WellbeingInTheWild! Send us your photos of our Wellbeing Wednesday resources in your classroom! This could be a display or our activities in action (no children’s faces please). Our favourite will win an exclusive Teacher’s Pet merchandise bundle and a £25 Amazon gift voucher!

Roll up, Roll up – The Grammar Circus is back in town!
Welcome to the… ‘Tenses Tent’! The ‘Tenses Tent’ is the latest addition to our Grammar Circus resources, with amazing resources such as the wonderful tent table display crafting activity, as well as a whole HOST of Tenses Tent resources that are all about… you guessed it, tense! Our Tense Tent resources are PERFECT for learning about what tense is, learning about past and future tense and how to change a word into different tenses.
We have a wide variety of resources including an animated PowerPoint, Interactive Display, Choosing the Correct Past Tense verb in sentences and so much more!
Your next FREE Classroom Essential
This week our classroom freebie is a handy pack of smiley face assessments in three different sizes! Fully editable, you can add your own text and then put these in the front of work books, pencil pots and on the wall within your classroom.
Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning Lanyards
Characteristics of Effective Teaching and Learning Lanyard Cards! Attach these cards to a lanyard to have instant knowledge about the characteristics of effective teaching and learning! Use them when you are observing children’s play and learning or to assess how children learn in different areas of the provision.
These are now ONLINE, and we have some updated ELG lanyard cards on their way very soon!
Get your skates on for the Alpine Angles
Our Angles resources have been VERY popular on the website since they were released. Our goal with them was to transform the thought of learning about Angles. Angles are seen as a very ‘bland’ subject to not only learn about, but teach also. With our Alpine Angles, we wanted to create vivid resources with fun themes that would help to increase the enjoyment for both the children and the teacher. Come check them out today!
Behaviour Prompt Pack
This is a brilliant set of 18 A4 sized posters showing different targets/reminders for pupils in their behaviour.
These are a very popular download at the moment as you all prepare your classrooms. They could also be laminated and used within circle time…
Here’s a SNEAK PEEK at the theming of our brand new KS1 project… Woodland Words! Woodland Words is a new project to help enhance vocabulary within writing!
Who’s excited for this wonderful project? We definitely are!
Create your own Skyla Sloth Mindful Zone
Create a small mindful zone in your classroom or corridor with our lovely new mini wellbeing display pack. It has everything from posters, bunting and leafy banners to mindful box labels and activity sheets to check in on their feelings. We’ve also added 3 other new EYFS/KS1 display packs – ‘Barry Beaver’s Construction Site‘ being an office favourite! Come take a look!
It’s time to ‘Fill Your Bookshelf’ with Phil!
Phil has been busy finding another book to add onto the bookshelf, and this week he’s settled on The Heart and the Bottle by Oliver Jeffers. Phil says – ‘The Heart and the Bottle is a profound yet simple story by the fantastic author and illustrator, Oliver Jeffers. It carries a beautiful message about love, loss, grief and finally a new hope. A wonderful book for KS1, KS2 or anyone who needs to hear it. Subtle enough that it could be read to younger children without being too upsetting, but powerful enough that it could be used to explore the difficult topics of grieving and the pain of losing a loved one.’
