Build a Bear
Today Early Years went for a trip to Build a Bear Factory to get their new class buddies. We were very proud of the children's behaviour and they were super representatives of the school. Stagecoach bus service had been very kind and put on some extra buses just for us. Once we arrived at Build a Bear, we had a chance to select our choice of class buddies and then we a class vote. Following this the children helped to stuff the new animal. Everyone was then given a paper heart which they used to send love, brains, energy and strength into the animals. We all then made a special wish on our paper hearts before they were collected and all placed inside a heart pouch which then went into our buddies. Finally we all took turns to give our new buddy a brush and select an outfit for them. The children voted for names and decided to simply call the buddies Rowan and Birch. It was a great day out and we are looking forward to sharing many adventures with our new furry friends.
