Transition celebrated World Book Day by taking part in various activities based on the well-known book ‘We’re going on a Bear Hunt’, written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
They had a fun packed morning which included a music session with Mrs Rathbone. Using different musical instruments, the children explored making sounds for each of the settings in the story. The morning also included a story box session where the children acted out the story and found items from ‘the cave’ that related to the different parts of the book. They added the items to a story map of their Bear Hunt adventures, an activity that was continued in the afternoon.
Some children said they wouldn’t go on a Bear Hunt again because it was scary, others said they would go on a Bear Hunt again because it was fun! The activities highlighted to children that books can be very enjoyable and the importance of celebrating World Book Day.
