Today Gruffalo Nursery had an amazing day at College Lake with their teddy bears. When we arrived at College Lake we listened to a story about some bears who live in the woods at College Lake and we met Edward Bear .
We went on a special walk around Edwards’s garden. We had to follow the trail of footprints he had left for us. In Edward’s garden there were herbs that smelt nice and some that didn’t smell so nice! Claire who works at College Lake told us that once she had fallen asleep in Edward’s garden and woke up to see a beautiful rainbow in the sky. Claire gave us pieces of a broken rainbow that we took around the garden to see if we could match the colours to what we saw in the garden.
Hunting for colours in Edward’s garden was hard work so we sat down and listened carefully to the birds.
Then it was time for out teddy bear’s picnic!!After lunch we made shelters for our teddy bears using materials from the woods. We made some fantastic teddy bear homes.
We dressed up as bears and trees to play teddy bear games. We learnt that we must look after trees because they are homes for lots of animals. At the end of the day we listened to Going on a bear hunt.
