We’re Going On A Bear Hunt!


An activity that all of the children loved recently was based on one of our favourite story books – We’re Going On A Bear Hunt!

The children all sat together and recited key phrases from the story. They started moving the people through each sensory tray while repeating each section of the story. They worked together amazingly, sharing the people moving them through the sensory trays to reach the end. The children spoke about what types of weather they like such as snow, rain and sunshine. They then spoke about different feelings, talking about how the bear might feel and how the children might feel too on their adventure to find him. This spurred some of the children on to talk about their own adventures that they had been on too (although they haven’t seen any real life bears!)

Lots of love,
