The Greatest Discovery!
Celebrating Reading & Literacy along with the 2020 OLYMPICS
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 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. Coinciding with the 2020 Tokyo Games, Book Week in Schools includes exciting elements of Olympic history, along with a selection of the CBCA 2020 Short List 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.
