What’s The Buzz is a social skills and emotional literacy program for children of  all ages, which supports them to develop a variety of essential interpersonal skills, stimulated by the experiences of a character called Archie.

In each lesson, the children help Archie solve the very same social dilemmas that occur in their everyday lives. As they do this, through activity, discussion, role-play, games, puzzles and quizzes, they learn how-to express feelings and become a more positive problem solver.

What’s The Buzz programs run for 16 weeks across two school terms. Some of the topics covered during the 16 weeks include:

  • Meeting People
  • Joining in
  • Sharing & Taking Turns
  • Cooperation
  • Making it Better
  • ‘Gracefully’ winning & loosing
  • Fact or Opinion
  • Feelings
  • Healthy Bodies
  • Honesty
  • Empathy
  • Saying ‘No’

 

This program is the early learners program and is suitable for children aged 5 to 8 years who would benefit with support in developing their foundational social skills.

  • for early learners: ages 5 to 8 years
