2018 was a huge year for Blue Kazoo. We have had the pleasure of working with lots of talented and enthusiastic teachers and pupils. We launched our Tiny Green Planet project in a handful of schools across Nottinghamshire and even ventured into Yorkshire for a few days with Robin Hood. 2019 looks to be even more exciting as we release Series 1 of Bloop in July and our new Jedi day in March. We have even welcomed two new members to the team: Matt our new video production manager and Adam our resident writer. They have proven themselves to be great additions to the team and we already have lots of fun new projects to launch in primary schools this year.

Schools visited in 2018

Tiny Green Planet proved to be a success in schools across Nottinghamshire. The aim of the project was to engage children in a conversation about conservation. Classes were encouraged to think about the impact they have on the world and were asked what they would change if they could design their own planet. The project was such a success in one school that we actually left the planet with them for an extra week because the children had so many brilliant ideas!
