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 created their own version of the story and designed their own book cover to match. Stories ranged from an alien hunt to a unicorn hunt.

To complete their unit of work, the children received a letter from a long-lost bear. The letter instructed them to follow the clues 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 (actually chocolate buttons) all over the tables. The bear hunt finished in the hall where the children discovered lots of teddies waiting for them to join a wonderful picnic.
