The final video of our Bloop series was released this month. The responses to the videos has been overwhelming and we are so pleased to hear that they are being used in schools across the country.
I spoke to one teacher who works in a school in Jarrow who used the Backpack video to engage discussions about mental health with her Y6 classes.
This also comes at a time when Greta Thunberg has become more prominent in the news and Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have discussed issues of mental health. It certainly feels like teachers are going to be expected to tackle these issues a lot more thoroughly and schools will be pushing a focus onto these kinds of social and global issues.
I am incredibly proud of the team who helped me put these video together over the last few months.
We aim to start production on Series 2 in early 2020. If there are any topics you would like us to address, or you have any comments about the current series, please do send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
