Young fans of the adorable, big-hearted and cheeky little white van can now join a unique schools education programme designed for reception year (year 1) children based on the popular children’s character Olly. ‘Olly’s Little Helpers’ Club is free to join and available for educators to download online at www.ollyslittlehelpersclub.com.
The campaign launches this week to over 17,000 primary schools and approximately 750,000 children aged 4-5 years old.
Children will learn how they can follow Olly's lead at home and now for the first time, at school, helping themselves, their family, other people and even the environment - all while having fun too!
A dedicated Teachers’ Zone provides comprehensive notes on how ‘Olly’s Little Helpers Club’ can benefit their reception and year one pupils. This provides teachers with the right tools to help inspire children to have fun whilst helping others. All materials are designed to support a child’s key development needs in line with the Early Year’s Foundation stages and curriculum.
In the Kids Zone, there are engaging activity sheets, club goodies and access to previous ‘Olly’ episodes. Kids will love the downloadable activity sheets, class posters, stickers, certificates, and badges. Parents also have their own ‘Zone’ to help them encourage their little one(s) to get involved with helping out at home.
Since Olly first came to CiTV last summer, he has been taken to the nation’s heart. Young viewers are captivated by Olly, voiced over by Justin Fletcher, MBE, the star of Mr Tumble, Gigglebiz and Justin’s House.
Olly the Little White Van airs twice a day on weekdays on CiTV at 9.45am and 1pm.
