Beech Class had a great morning visiting the Build a Bear Workshop in Festival Place, Basingstoke as part of our Toys topic this term. We walked to Chineham shops before getting the bus into town. We learned how bears are made and got to take turns stuffing and cleaning our bear. It was difficult to choose which bear would be our class mascot so we decided to have a vote and...white bear won! Beech Bear is settling in well to his new surroundings, looking very cool in his new outfit and shades. Sometimes, he also has to use a wheelchair to get around. Beech Bear will be helping the class with their circle times, thinking about what is important in a person and what we need to do to make sure others feel happy, whatever their shape, size or circumstance.
I wonder which bears will become Chestnut and Oak Classes mascots?? Watch this space to find out on Friday!
