To begin our new topic on animals; the children came into school to discover some footprints and other signs of bear activity in our outdoor areas. We followed the outdoor story map to find a lovely little cuddly bear who was hiding in one of our trees. The children have really enjoyed lots of activities linked to our story, including: making dens and caves, playing in the (pretend) snow, going on an adventure in the forest and splashing through the river in our water play area.
