The children in reception had an exciting although a little wet day out Hunting for a Bear in the Attenborough Arboretum. They made sure they had everything they needed for a successful trip – binoculars, map, torch and a towel.
They acted out the story We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ and followed the map taking them through the long wavy grass, squelchy mud, splashy river, dark forest and a howling snowstorm before they found the bear hiding in a gloomy cave.
The children had a fun time completing literacy and art activities linked to the story and displayed these on a long sheet of paper showing their journey.
We concluded our day by standing under the story tree and telling the story one last time using some sign language.
