LEARNING TIME WITH SHAUN AND TIMMY
The stars of the internationally successful animated television show ‘Timmy Time’ – Shaun the Sheep and Timmy the Lamb, will be joining and encouraging flocks of nursery and Kindergarten children in Singapore to learn English.
Meet the Woolly Stars Shaun and Timmy
Who is Timmy?
Timmy the Lamb is the main character from ‘Timmy Time’, a British stop-motion animated children’s comedy series created by the BBC and Aardman Animations. Besides enjoying basking in the spotlight, Timmy often gets into trouble. But he learns from his mistakes, and also tries to help others whenever he can.
Who is Shaun?
Shaun the Sheep is a character from an animated show of the same name. The show (a spin-off of the Wallace and Gromit franchise) follows Shaun, who is the leader of his flock on a trail of hilarious adventures in a farm. It was first aired in the United Kingdom in March 2007 and has been broadcast in 180 countries around the world!
