Twinkl’s ‘This Year, I Will’ project gives school children around the world the opportunity to share their goals and aspirations for 2022, encouraging continuity and determination in the young generations
The event officially launches on the week commencing 17th of January 2022, as Ditch New Year’s Resolutions Day approaches. According to a study by the University of Scranton, an estimated 80% of people don’t stick to their resolutions, so Twinkl decided to make this project all year round.
The reasoning behind this project is to create something special for school children to look forward to as part of this new year and to teach them a fun way to create good habits and follow them up, especially at a young age!
Children can also undertake tasks and activities that they may not normally do and get out of their comfort zone, creating meaningful moments of connection with friends and family.
This project can help encourage children to pursue their passions in the upcoming year, whether that be a specific skill, hobby or sport they wish to get involved with or an area of education they wish to explore further.
The special thing about this project is that it will be all year round. Twinkl will in fact provide new resolutions sheets each month, for teachers and parents to print out! #NotNewYearButAllYear

“With 2021 still presenting its fair share of struggles, it’s important we give voice to the aspirations and 2022 goals that our younger generations have for the upcoming year.”

The idea for Twinkl came to Jonathan and Susie Seaton when Susie was working as an Early Years teacher and couldn’t find the materials she needed for her lessons online. As a result, Susie was working evenings and weekends to make resources from scratch.
Speaking to colleagues and friends, the couple found that Susie was not alone in her situation. So, to help other teachers, they began creating and publishing educational resources online from their spare bedroom.
The business grew quickly and organically as educators embraced the high-quality materials. The team grew quickly too, with current and former teachers, as well as experts in content and design soon joining Jonathan and Susie in their mission ‘to help those who teach.’
Jonathan and Susie are delighted that Twinkl is now taking this mission across the world, returning time and energy to educators that is better spent in the classroom with their pupils or on themselves at home.
