Bear Hunt

We have been reading ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’ and doing work based on the book. We went on a bear hunt around school then we revisited the places to think of how we could describe them.

We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. What a beautiful day! We’re not scared.
