We've partnered with The Boss Baby 2: Family Business, in cinemas October 22, to create a brand new two-lesson plan resource, The Boss Baby 2: Family Business - Shaping Teams and Shifting Mindsets.

This cross-curricular teaching material, suitable for 6-11 year olds, aims to strengthen core subject learning in maths, English, science and PSHE education alongside a wealth of opportunities for class collaboration and rich, open-ended problem solving to boost students' personal development and academic attainment.

In the sequel to DreamWorks Animation's Oscar®-nominated blockbuster comedy, the Templeton brothers Tim and his Boss Baby little bro Ted have become adults and drifted away from each other. Tim is now a married stay-at-home dad. Ted is a hedge fund CEO. But a new boss baby with a cutting-edge approach and a can-do attitude is about to bring them together again … and inspire a new family business.

Using the film's trailer and the line 'you can't solve everything with money' as inspiration, our resource promotes education for economic wellbeing, including identifying ‘wants' and ‘needs' and how these might change and progress through life. The resource will also reflect the new mandatory RSE (relationships and sex education) curriculum for primary age, making this a current and compelling resource for teachers. 

Like The Templetons, students will work collaboratively to set up their own hypothetical business through immersive learning by taking on the roles of Negotiator and Accountant in a budgeting exercise; Marketer in a persuasive writing challenge and Designer in an activity which fuels art and English skills to develop the best way to promote and showcase the student's business.

Drawing on the science curriculum and growth mindset practice, students will discover more about growth and development in humans and be introduced to the concept of lifelong learning and setting their own personal goals. Students will plan how to achieve these, recognising that learning, practise, setbacks, and growth are a part of life and, just like the characters in the film, adults face these obstacles too.

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.
