Inspiration for half-term

Disney Junior

The big news this May on Sky is the launch of a brand-new channel - Disney Junior. Perfect for the junior viewers in your family. 

Disney Junior is the home of some well-loved children's favourites, such as Imagination Movers, The Hive, Mr Moon and Little Einsteins, as well as brand-new shows like Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Art Attack and A Poem Is.... 

Keeping the little ones entertained during half-term can be a little challenging to say the least, but take a look at some of Sky's ideas, which you could use to inspire your children after watching some of the new shows on Disney Junior this May.

Plus take a look at Disney Junior's activity tool "What Shall We Do Today?", designed to help parents find fun and interactive activities for their kids. 

Disney JakeJake and the Never Land Pirates

Disney Junior's new series Jake and the Never Land Pirates is on every day  9.45am, with brand-new episodes playing throughout the month.

Jake and the Never Land Pirates is an animated adventure series that introduces a crew of kid pirates - leader Jake and pals Izzy and Cubby - and follows their Never Land adventures as they work together to outwit two infamous characters, the one and only Captain Hook and Smee, from Disney's classic Peter Pan.

For some half term fun why not have a pirate fancy dress gathering with your childrens' friends? Children will have lots of fun dressing up and pretending to be one of the characters from the show Jake and the Never Land Pirates. You could even create a treasure hunt in the garden and draw simple maps to give the children clues on where to find the treasure


Art Attack

Art Attack is back! The cult children's TV series has had a lick of paint. Set amongst the giant pots of paint and pencils, the new-look Art Attack is hosted by Jassa Ahluwalia who will take children and their parents on a journey of creativity giving simple step-by-step instructions on how to create art masterpieces using every-day things found around the home. Art Attack is in better shape than ever to inspire creativity and imagination for a whole new generation.  The brand new series shows on Disney Junior UK from Monday 6th June at 3.25pm


A Poem Is

A Poem Is introduces a new generation of children to the beauty of poems well read. Featuring iconic moments from Disney’s vault of animation history set to classic poetry, the series is voiced by a raft of UK talent from the stage and screen including Billy Connolly, Catherine Tate, Richard E. Grant, Joanna Page, Simon Pegg and Ashley Jensen. The series of 12 x 2 minute poetry-shorts showcase timeless poems for children set to iconic scenes and animation from classic Disney films such as Winnie the Pooh, Dumbo, Bambi and The Princess and the Frog. Poems include Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s The Arrow and the Song, A.A. Milne’s A Wind On The Hill, Robert Louis Stevenson’s My Shadow and The Star by Ann Taylor. A Poem Is shows on Disney Junior UK on Saturdays, 10am.




From Saturday 28 May and continuing throughout the week, Disney Junior invites viewers to come and join in Jake's Treasure Hunt. It's a week filled with stacks of Jake and the Never Land Pirates. 

These episodes will be stacked back-to-back from 9.50am all week.
