Sonic Skills: Set for Success

Medium (5-11 activities)

Created in partnership with Youth Sport Trust, our Sonic Skills: Set for Success resource is a PE-led lesson sequence for teachers of young people aged 9-13, all inspired by the Sonic the Hedgehog film. Using the trailer as its inspiration, the learning sequence gives pupils the opportunity to explore the benefits of mindfulness and physical activity on their overall wellbeing.

Learners will take part in a range of simple mindfulness activities before creating a range of exercises inspired by the speed, enthusiasm and skills of the bright and brilliant protagonist, Sonic the Hedgehog. Using data recorded from their exercises, pupils will examine and present their findings in a chart before using line graphs as inspiration for their own Sonic Stories creative writing task.

Each lesson is carefully structured with teachers in mind and features pupil-friendly activity sheets and engaging homework tasks. All supporting materials include curriculum outcomes suitable for all nations and regions.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
