What's the Buzz? posters 3 and 4

Archie's set of 4 BIG POSTERS have been created by demand from teachers and parents. Since What's the Buzz? For EARLY LEARNERS was released in 2015 we have frequently been asked to create a set of Archie posters as an encouraging addition to the programme. The idea is for the posters to be displayed at home and in classrooms as visual motivation for children to improve their social awareness and flexibility After all, if Archie can do it, so can they!
