Book 1: The New Playground

Plus grade 1–2 Lesson Plan and Activity-based Resources

Patch and his friends wriggled and chatted with excitement as they waited to see their new school playground. Ms Stanley reminded all her students how important it was to think carefully and act kindly towards each other no matter how excited they were. But Charlie forgot that important message as soon as he entered the playground.

Book 2: The Four Square Challenge

Plus grade 3–4 Lesson Plan and Activity-based Resources

Skye had a knot in her stomach as she headed out with Patch, Mei and Khaya for their final practice for the Four Square Time Challenge. She really wanted to win that afternoon’s final. But in one thoughtless moment, when nerves and frustration got the better of her, Skye made a big mistake that cost her a place in the afternoon challenge.

Book 3: Footy Fever

Plus grade 5–6 Lesson Plan and Activity-based Resources

The Aussie Rules under-13 players in the Rockets and Sharks teams were each huddled together before the match as their coaches reminded them to enjoy the game and be good sports at all times. During some closely contested passages of play, Barney forgot that he was part of a team. He let his desire to be a hero cloud his judgement. One thoughtless act changed the end of Barney’s season.

About the Lesson Plans and Activity-based Resources

A thoughtfully designed ready-to-use classroom program harnessing age-appropriate activities for teachers to use over one or multiple class periods.

Resources include activity sheets, games, writing cards and role-play scenarios to support the learning. You will also receive a digital accreditation badge to share on your website or newsletter and a printable poster to display in the classroom.

The materials build on the characters’ experiences in the books to encourage students to explore feelings and emotions.

Students will explore how they relate to positive and negative actions and will make connections to the consequences of these actions.  

The stories are on point with the situations that arise in schools and the strategies used to resolve them.
