Puss in Boots: Venture Better Together, created in partnership with Universal Pictures, is a curriculum-linked learning sequence for pupils aged 7-11 which draws from the characters and themes of the new adventure Puss in Boots: The Last Wish, in cinemas February 3. 


Puss in Boots: The Last Wish sees the return of everyone’s favourite fear-defying feline as he embarks on a grand quest to restore his lost lives, with help from former nemesis Kitty Softpaws and the relentlessly cheerful Perrito. 

Our new two-lesson learning sequence takes inspiration from the film to engage 7-11 year olds across English/literacy, design and technology, RSE/PSHE and art and design. 


Activities within the resource include: 

Team Skills Sorting activity  

Use the film’s trailer to introduce the characters from the film and open up a discussion about the most important aspects of teamwork, and how these can be the keys to success.  

Story Planning activity  

Students will plan and write their own adventure story inspired by the film’s trio of heroes, using the conventions of adventure stories as well as their learnings about the importance of different skills when collaborating. 

Going For It activity  

Introduce your class to the concept of positive risk-taking. Students will consider how Puss could have pursued adventure more responsibly, before applying these learnings to real-world examples. 

Everyday Adventures activity  

Life’s an adventure: learners will reflect on the adventures they have in their everyday lives both at home and at school. 


Your students’ in-class learning will be enhanced by a creative home-learning task as well as a competition which builds on the themes of the resource. 

A chance to win a private screening of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish with our Fill Your Boots competition!

Pupils are encouraged to consider the exciting adventures still to come and share the five things that they would most like to try in their lifetime.

The competition builds upon the themes of adventure and positive risk taking explored in the resource, inspiring students to think confidently about their ambitions. 

The winner will receive a merchandise pack, plus a private screening of Puss in Boots: The Last Wish for their whole class!

Updating our resources
