We’re Going On Bear Hunt

The other week we went on a bear hunt in Onyx and Garnet classes. We read the Michael Rosen book and retold it ourselves. Then we had to remember what happened when to help Miss Parker draw the story map. We did a great job remembering all the different words to describe the places.


After we decided we wanted to have a go ourselves at drawing and writing our own maps. We did a fabulous job at drawing the different places and even made up some new ones of our own. There were mountains on them and even rock pools. The children were sharing the space and resources and working collaboratively to complete their maps.



The children were really showing off their mark making skills. Look at some of the finished results…


We also wrote signs to keep people safe on the Hunt with children listening for the sounds they could hear and writing them. Look at this excellent example of early writing…


There were lots more ways in the provision for us to retell the story in different ways. Some of us even started making up our own stories.


We loved going on a Bear Hunt!
