Greetings to you all
Itâ€™s the beginning of a new school year in New Zealand â€“ we are just back from our summer break.
Time to get to know a new group of students!
Discovery Time is the perfect opportunity to excite childrenâ€™s curiosity, discover their strengths and stand back and observe how they work together. Keep your â€˜Key Competenciesâ€™ focussed on â€˜managing selfâ€™ and â€˜relating to othersâ€™ i.e. looking after equipment, sharing, taking turns, cleaning up when you have finished, trying something new, working with someone you donâ€™t knowâ€¦
Have a look at Discovery Time Activities on Pinterest for a few activities that we have collected
Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested in Discovery Time and contact us if you have any thoughts or questions. If you are starting Discovery Time for the first time let us know so that we can add your school to our list on the website.
Most importantlyâ€¦ have fun!
Go Green Gecko is here!
We are proud to announce the arrival of Page Breakâ€™s newest title; Go Green Gecko! It follows the adventures of the Wellington green gecko as he forages for food in the New Zealand bush. Again, Margaret Tolland uses texture and layered images to bring the characters and native bush to life and Gay Hayâ€™s rhythmic language builds tension. What will happen when green gecko becomes the prey?
It is also available in Te Reo Maori.
