Teddy Bears Picnic

Although we had a bit of a late start due to the road works in Beckenham, the children really enjoyed it and we have had some amazing feedback from parents about how good the day was. 
The children read the story ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ to start off their day and then split off into different groups to explore the woods, doing a mini beast hunt and some pond dipping, where they were really excited to find a Water Boatman. We spent the day walking through thick oozy mud, made our way through some, not so long wavy grass, to look at the pond that made a splash splosh, and finally to a narrow gloomy cave. Luckily there were no bears in the cave while we were there! A lot of the children really enjoyed having a picnic with their teddy bears too, and were so exhausted on the way back we had a few children fall asleep.  Miss Owen
