Spring - World Book Day

For World Book Day we concentrated on the theme of ‘Story Bears’. Many of the children came dressed as story bears or brought a bear to school for the day. The children took part in a number of different bear related activities. The children researched and made a timeline of famous bears through the ages, investigated bear stories and looked at information books about bears in the library, read stories with a reading buddy and acted out stories using their own bears.

We were visited by “Branscombe Bear” and together wrote and illustrated the story of how he arrived in Branscombe. All of the children took part in a “Bear Hunt” together around the school and had great fun going through the various obstacles the characters encounter in We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
