To mark this supernatural occasion, we've teamed up with StudioCanal UK and The Woolmark Company's Super Natural Wool campaign to produce a cross-curricular science, PSHE and D&T resource for pupils aged 5-9: Protect Our Planet.
Including interview footage with Aardman Animations and the film's directors, an exciting competition to win an Aardman model maker workshop for your class, plus the chance to snap up a limited printed activity pack, this new resource is not to be missed!
Experience the shear joy of Shaun the Sheep with your class, investigating the theme of sustainability whilst learning about planet-friendly natural materials. Over three lessons, take your learners on an intergalactic journey from Mossy Bottom Farm to outer space to explore the importance of looking after our planet and making sustainable choices in everyday life!
As the learning sequence develops, your pupils will impart their new-found sustainability wisdom on others by creating a Shaun-inspired sci-fi and sustainability story, then building woolly pom pom sheep models to create their very own role-play or mini stop-motion animation film.
There are 200 printed packs of competition leaflets and activity sheets to give away!
Each pack contains:
Strange lights over the quiet town of Mossingham herald the arrival of a mystery visitor from far across the galaxy… When the intergalactic visitor – an impish and adorable alien called LU-LA – crash-lands near Mossy Bottom Farm, Shaun soon sees an opportunity for alien-powered fun and adventure and sets off on a mission to shepherd LU-LA home. Her magical alien powers, irrepressible mischief and galactic sized burps soon have the flock enchanted. Shaun takes his new extra-terrestrial friend on the road to Mossingham Forest to find her lost spaceship, unaware that a sinister alien-hunting agency is on their trail. Can Shaun and the flock avert Farmageddon on Mossy Bottom Farm before it’s too late?

To celebrate the launch of Shaun the Sheep's latest film, multi award-winning animation studio Aardman created a unique short film with The Woolmark Company and StudioCanal to showcase the super-natural benefits of wool. The short film sees the franchise's newest member, a lovable alien called LU-LA, crash-land on Mossy Bottom farm in need of comfort and warmth. LU-LA quickly discovers the softness of wool and travels back to space with an array of the latest wool looks courtesy of Shaun and the flock.
To support the campaign, The Woolmark Company developed an educational website for pupils to discover where wool comes from and its super-natural benefits, such as being natural, biodegradable and renewable. Available in English, Mandarin,Japanese and German, www.SuperNaturalWool.com hosts three games and a suite of downloadable activity sheets for 4-12 years old.
