Buzzy Bees Programme

Nau Mai Haere Mai!

Welcome to the Buzzy Bees 4 year old Transition to School Programme.

The Buzzy Bee Book Club is a fun way to help the older children get ready for school. This is supposed to be relaxed, fun and get children primed for reading by discussing the pictures, using a pointing finger and memorising text.

The purpose of this programme is to support children’s readiness for school. We provide them with learning experiences which will set them up for the beginning of primary school.

It will cover important foundation skills such as:

Pre-writing skills through practice of our pincer grasp

Early numeracy practiced through songs and counting

Listening skills

Following skills

Following instructions

Cutting skills

Learning to have a listening body

Board and memory games

Small projects and problem-solving techniques

If your child is four or older and would like to join, please see Jackie.
