To all customers and supporters,

It is with some sadness that we write to inform you all that Wake Up Shake Up Productions will cease trading on March 31st 2020. The company was first set up by Ruth in 2004 and it was never imagined that it would be a valuable resource to so many schools for so long.

Ruth stepped down from the running of the company in 2013 and Ellie has been running is successfully ever since. But family commitments and other ventures now make it unviable to continue.

To clear current stock there will be a 50% DISCOUNT available until March 31st, on a first come first served basis Once stocks are gone there will be no further production, so be quick to avoid disappointment.

We feel honoured to have been able to support those schools who have recognised the importance of daily physical activity for their children, and we hope that you will continue to promote this.

Thank you everyone for your custom and support.
We both wish you every success for the future.
Ruth & Ellie Mitchell


The No. 1 award winning programme to get children active.

If you are looking for an easy way to increase participation in daily physical activity and maximise the impact of your PE & Sport Grant then Wake Up Shake Up is just what you need! It is based on fun moves to ‘pop’ music which are designed around core movement skills to encourage good physical development. It’s SO EASY… just follow the DVD. Each pack has 6 or 7 routines for you, ready to go and also includes a licensed music CD. For details of all DVDs in the series for EYFS, KS1 and KS2, as well as the new one for the elderly or less mobile, please view our shop.

So why so successful?

  • As a teacher, the only onus on you is to provide encouragement and enthusiasm
  • It only takes 5-10 minutes
  • Can be done anywhere at any time of day to suit the school
  • Ideal for Young Leaders to take ownership of it
  • Provides opportunities for competition with a difference
  • On-going availability of new resources will ensure sustainability


We introduced Wake Up Shake Up, with ‘When the Going Gets Tough’, through a healthy schools week, which the children loved. We are now using it as intended, outside school in the mornings and have progressed to the YMCA! All the children are really enjoying it and we have had some great feedback. I also convinced the PTA to buy us a boogie box and the whole thing has been a great success so far! The biggest fans are the year 6 boys, which I was definitely not expecting!”

My class of 10 KS2 Autistic pupils took to it immediately and on the first go my colleague who teaches PE said they had all been more active in 10 mins than they had EVER been in any PE lesson!
