As a teacher I sometimes despair of the way learning becomes more and more like 'fun' - how can I compete? And when it's also as soundly educational as the new Super Geek Heroes Animated Series I sometimes fear I'll soon be out of a job!
The Super Geek Heroes are an animated group of super-kids... with the tagline having fun in turn with a mission to learn! Their seven friendly ‘super-powers’ derive from the three prime and four specific development areas of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’ resulting in the following super characters:
· Personal, Social and Emotional Development - Suzi Smiles
· Understanding the World - Peter Planet
· Communication & Language - Vicky Voice
· Literacy - Jake Jotter
· Numeracy - Mille Maths
· Physical Development - Ant Active
· Creative Arts & Design - Ronnie Rock
I've just had a look with Charlie - and he's impressed. And if he's impressed, I'm impressed. You can have a look at the playlist on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/supergeekheroes as well as finding out more about the concept on their website - visit http://www.supergeekheroes.com (where there's also a special page explaining the concept for parents http://www.supergeekheroes.com/parents.html).
And that's not all!
If you'd like to win a free 6 month subscription to KidsCast APP where you can download and view Super Geek Heroes on the go or cast to your TV, then simply watch the following clip and answer this question:
