Year 1: We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

In Literacy, Year 1 have been studying “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt”. They have used the story to describe a setting and sequence events. Children chose to alter the story and go on a ‘Bug Hunt’, ‘Alien Hunt’ or a ‘Gem Hunt’. To complete their unit of work, the children went on their own bear hunt. They followed clues that took them around the school grounds to experience different stages of the story. As the children moved to the mud they chanted:
Uh-uh! Mud!
Thick oozy mud.
We can't go over it.
We can't go under it.
Oh no!
We’ve got to go through it!
Squelch squelch!
Squelch squelch!
Squelch squelch!
This took them through Miss Blunt’s classroom that had mud all over the tables. As the children discovered, it was in fact chocolate mousse and they enjoyed dipping their fingers in it. The bear hunt finished in the hall where the children discovered lots of teddies waiting for them to join a wonderful picnic.
