Wellbeing Wednesday – The Last Battle & Graduation
As the dust settles after 11 weeks of battling The Negatron, and having defeated the last part of it, the mental health heroes get ready to celebrate their victory at the wellbeing academy…
However, proving that negative energy can be persistent and can attack at ANY time, the sky begins to darken as the Negatron returns one more time!
Just like in previous weeks, Week 12 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!
We’re so excited for you to see the final animation from our Mental Health Heroes series!! 5 minutes long and packed full of exciting sequences, which we know the children are going to love. A great opportunity for the children to recap everything they have learned over the last 11 weeks and watch as the superheroes come together to defeat THE Negatron once and for all. Take a look at our TWELFTH and FINAL AMAZING animation 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
For those of you that also want to read The Last Battle, our final comic book is ready to help the children recap the last 11 weeks, show the final epic battle and celebrate as the Mental Health Heroes graduate from the Wellbeing Academy. Our online flipbook is a great way to share the book with the whole class on your interactive whiteboard or in a small group or independently using a tablet.
We guarantee that you and your class are going to LOVE the story as we reach its conclusion.
Our very talented Graphic Designer, Emily, has been hard at work! Herding these 3 Little Pigs and their trio of questionably stable houses onto some brand new resources!
Expect to see more “Traditional Tales” resources on the site over the coming weeks, namely one “Enormous Turnip” as well as a very trusting “Gingerbread Man!“
Our collection of Traditional Tales resources will always be growing, if you have any suggestions of Traditional Tales that you would like to see, let us know.
Giving Your Favourites a Fresh Look
Over the Summer we’ll be busy giving some of your favourite resources a much-needed refresh.
This week we have added new visuals to our super popular ‘Guided Reading Poster Packs‘.
Bold and colourful, they are perfect to print out in A4 or A3 and dot around your reading area or in the school library to help children improve their reading skills. Keep a lookout for even more updated resources in the coming weeks, ready to use in the classroom in the new school year.
Jim and The Beanstalk
Everyone’s favourite twist on a classic – A brand new edition to the site are our fantastic new ‘Jim and the Beanstalk‘ resources planned by our KS1 teacher, Hannah, and illustrated by Emily. They are looking amaaaazing! We will have story sequencing, display resources, and plenty of fun activities for the classroom – including links to science! Available to download this coming week.
If you haven’t come across this story before then go and check it out!
Launching this Friday, we thought we would give you a brief overview of how our SPEAK Phonics programme has been carefully organised through our phonics hub, to help you easily find what you are looking for.
Each core area shown above will take you through the resources you need, to successfully deliver a systematic, synthetic phonics scheme in your school.
Our first batch of resources will be hitting our brand new phonics hub on our soft launch date of Friday 9th July! We also have a free Block 1 Taster Pack up for grabs this coming week, so keep an eye on our social media channels or our new resources on the website for links to download.
Classroom Essentials Campaign
Throughout July and August, we will be offering a different Classroom Essential for FREE through our website every single week. If you’ve not tried our resources before, it’s a great opportunity to download and see what all the fuss is about. If you’re already a member, (thank you for supporting us) why not mention it to your colleagues so they can try our resources too.
This week’s FREE resources is our very popular set of Behaviour Prompt Fans. A great way to communicate expectations to your class, a small group or individual, without interrupting the lesson flow or teaching. Simply print off, laminate and attach to a keyring to create a handy behaviour management tool for your classroom.
These are also great for those that may have language barriers and find the visual prompts easier to process. A must have for any classroom and especially great for NQTs.
Fill Your Bookshelf – Phil’s Book Review
For this week’s ‘Fill Your Bookshelf’ Phil has been reading the wonderful ‘Migo and Ali’ written by Zanib Mian and illustrated by Basma Hosom. Phil believes this book would make a fantastic classroom resource. With just short of 300 pages it is a comprehensive encyclopaedia covering a wide range of topics and concepts to do with Islam.
He particularly recommends this book because it is easily accessible for children and also a useful reference for teachers. A wonderful read that comes highly recommended!. Got any recommendations yourself for Phil or anyone to read? Leave a comment below on the blog!
