Our very first special event in the Early Years the Teddy Bears’ Picnic took place on Friday 13th September. Bears of all shapes, sizes, colours and in different states of repair arrived with the children, ready to make sandwiches, then ‘go down’ to the woods for the story of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’ and to sing lots of bear songs.
Miss Fenwick had all of the children captivated. There where ohs and ahs as Goldilocks trespassed into the bears’ cottage, ate the porridge, broke baby bear’s chair and feel asleep on a sea of cushions. The children had been practising songs all week and each and every one, including the staff, joined in with the songs and actions. Afterwards, while sitting together in the sunshine, the children enjoyed their sandwiches and some other treats.
Then at 3 o’clock tired and happy the ‘Mummies and Daddies came to take them home to bed’.
