‘ We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’

As part of ‘World Book Day’ we went on our very own Bear hunt! We read the story together and set off to see if we could find him. We searched through the ‘swishy swashy’ grass, through the ‘thick oozy’ mud and entered into ‘big dark forest’! We looked up high and there he was “The Bear!!!!!” However in a twist to the story the children did not want to run away from him, they asked for him to join us. Our Bear was very “soft and furry” and wasn’t scary at all! The Bear joined us as we explored the rest of the outdoors and came back to live with us at Pre-school.
