A few weeks ago the children were very surprised to find a trail of muddy footprints going through the classroom!
The children spent a long time thinking about what could have made the footprints. The children then received a video message by email from a bear, apologising for leaving muddy footprints in their classroom. He told the children he was only looking for friends! Some of the children thought the bear was a bit scary but when we talked about how he was feeling, we decided that we would quite like to be his friend
The children were very kind and decided that we needed to find the bear and be friends with it! The children spent a lot of time re-telling the bear hunt story and practicing all of the actions. We decided that we should go on our own bear hunt to find the bear and after looking on Google maps, the children decided that we may find the bear at Bidbury park because of all the trees and bushes to hide under.
The children were very excited to go on their first trip hunting for a bear. They were very well behaved following instructions and listening. The children drew maps of the order of the story. We used these maps to follow the pictures to the cave. When both classes reached the cave they each found a bear and a letter from him.
Saturn class have decided to name their bear Henry and Venus class have named their bear Harry. The children will each have a chance to bring the bear home for the weekend and write about all of their exciting adventures that they have together!
