Back to School Show: Sharna Jackson, Lee Newbery, Olaf Falafel

Our 30 min Back to School Story Makers Show is filled with simple activities to develop empathy, inspire creativity and build reading and writing for pleasure in the classroom. It’s the perfect ice-breaker for the beginning of a brand new year!

The show can be watched as one full 30 min show, or split into 10 minute short missions to easily slot into your schedule. A perfect watch to ease children back into the school term after a break.

  • Create your own classroom code of conduct with Sharna Jackson to track your progress throughout the year. 
  • Take part in a fun draw-a-long with Olaf Falafel to fill your school with Art Avengers!
  • Make a mythical class mascot and play The Pebble Game with Lee Newbery to settle back into your classroom spaces.

Simply download the accompanying Mission Pack with all the worksheets you need, and join some of our brilliant Puffin authors and illustrators on imaginative story making missions!

The event is streamed through YouTube Premiere, and a YouTube player is embedded in the Puffin Schools website in order to stream. Please check your school’s website permissions to ensure that YouTube isn’t blocked.
