Junior School Teddy Bear Picnic!

Grades 1 and 2 held a ‘Teddy Bear Picnic’ day on Thursday March 30, 2017. What a great way to celebrate the end of our Integrated Studies unit on ‘Toys and Games’ and the end of Term 1.

We were full of excitement in the morning. We walked in to our classrooms, showing off our teddies to our teachers and friends. We obviously couldn’t retain our excitement throughout the day especially when it was time for us to go to the picnic.
We had our picnic in the multipurpose room as it was too cold for us outside. We all sat in a large circle. We ate our lunch and then our teachers passed us teddy bear biscuits as a treat.
We played pass the parcel with music. Each time the music stopped, whoever had the parcel unwrapped the first layer. It took us a while until the price was won by Hadijah in 12W.
It was then time for raffle draws and that was lots of fun too. We enjoyed drumming the floor each time the tickets were drawn. There were lots of prizes won by many of us.
We took our teddies outside to play on the playground. Our teddies enjoyed taking the slide ride, climbing the monkey bars and being held and cuddled too.
