'It's a Bear!'
The children had a wonderful time re-telling this classic story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt', so much so it extended beyond book week and throughout the term. The children enjoyed exploring the illustrations and creating their own representations of them using a variety of materials and we also went on a bear hunt around the school grounds. The children were very excited to discover Boris the bear, he chased them all the way back to nursery where we realised he was just lonely and in need of some friends. The children worked together to build him a shelter and they read him stories and had circle times to teach him to how be a good friend. We also sequenced the story using words like 'beginning', 'middle' and 'end' and created story maps. We had a wonderful time copying different body shapes and poses when we joined in with 'Cosmic Yoga - We're Going on a Bear Hunt'.
