Aardman have announced that they are in production on ‘Learning Time with Timmy’ - a new educational online series for early years English language learners.
The series, which is set to launch on a dedicated YouTube channel, has been developed in collaboration with the British Council, and is the latest addition to the innovative Learning Time with Shaun & Timmy portfolio which marries the studio’s much loved characters with the British Council’s teaching expertise to deliver English language learning for 2-6 year olds around the world.
Aardman will launch the YouTube channel this summer with content rolling out on a weekly basis. The 26 ‘Learning Time with Timmy’ episodes follow the curriculum developed by the British Council and feature alongside fun and engaging bonus content. The content is flexible and can be tailored to optimise the learning experience according to the specific requirements in different territories, offering additional linear broadcast opportunities. The team are also developing an international publishing and licensing programme to further extend the brand and enable more children, parents and educators around the world to access the Learning Time with Shaun & Timmy learning experience.
