THE GREATEST DISCOVERY...

 

What’s in the box?  That’s the question on everybody’s lips when students bring to school something they’ve uncovered that has been put in a storage box – in a cupboard, in the shed, at the back of an old second hand store… 

Both Claire and Jonno believe they have found something that is sure to be the winner of ‘Greatest Discovery’ on the day.  Is it Jonno whose imagination has run wild or Claire, who has an incredible story to tell, who will win the day?  Get ready to cheer, sing, dance and get involved as these two lovable characters go head to head and everyone rushes along with them towards the moment we hear the announcement of who has made The Greatest Discovery!

The Greatest Discovery combines a love of reading and books with a celebration of diversity and competition! Watch a selection of The CBCA Shortlisted Books of 2020 come to life, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavor rather than competitive results.

The Greatest Discovery is a highly interactive incursion where the entire audience will together explore the very best Australian children’s books and the 2020 CBCA Book Week theme: CURIOUS CREATURES, WILD MINDS.

Book Week in Schools includes exciting elements of Olympic history, along with a selection of The CBCA 2020 Shortlisted Books, encouraging students to engage with reading in an active and energetic manner and reinforcing the idea of inclusiveness and celebration of endeavour rather than competition outcomes.

Check out what the teachers are saying about our last production:

It was the best incursion I have been to.  The layout, the actions, getting the students moving mid performance was a great idea.  The message was invaluable, I have changed my lesson structure around to incorporate the positive messages. Thank you!
