Today was the day the Nursery children had been waiting for! The day of our own bear hunt!! The children were so excited they couldn’t wait to find a bear!!
We went outside and decided it was a chilly day!
We set off singing….
“We’re going on a bear hunt, we’re going to catch a big one! What a chilly day! We’re not scared……….”
Uh oh!!! A road! A hard dangerous road! We couldn’t jump over it and we couldn’t go under it so we have to carefully walk across it!
Our journey continued…..
Uh oh!!! A path! A bumpy wooden path!! We couldn’t go over it, we couldn’t go under it! We had to walk down it!
We stumble tripped our way along!
Uh oh!! Mud! Thick oozy mud!! We couldn’t go over it, we couldn’t go under it! We had lots of fun squelch squirching through the mud!
The children kept a look out for clues, looking for footprints and scratches on trees!
Uh oh!!! A forest! A dark, spooky forest! We couldn’t go over it, we couldn’t go under it! We had to walk through it!!
We thought the forest would be the best place to find a bear! Suddenly, we started to spot bear footprints! The children knew they belonged to a bear because they counted that they had 5 toes! They led us deeper in the the forest…..
…through a tip-toe tunnel…….
The bear was hiding up in a tree! Carefully we got him down. On the bear there was a label which read “Please look after this bear!” The bear was lost and lonely. The children thought the best idea was to bring him back to school.
They carefully carried him the whole way back.
Once in school they shared milk and fruit with him.
They then decided he needed a name. Each child thought up and wrote down a name to go into a hat. The name picked out was chosen by Alex!!
Say hello to Pickle the bear!
The Nursery children have decided Pickle can live in the bear cave in our classroom! They are going to be his friends and take him on lots of adventures!
