Bunty Bear with Daisy at The Lion King

Daisy (Year 1) took Bunty, one of the HOHS bears, to see the Lion King last Sunday!  Bunty had to compete with a Simba teddy after the show though! Thank you to Daisy’s mum for sending us these lovely pictures.

Barnaby Bear gets lost…and found!

Polly (Year 1) had a very exciting ski trip to Switzerland at half term. She took HOHS’s very own Barnaby Bear with her (we all know he likes to travel and see different places to tell us about!) But Barnaby got left on the plane home from Geneva by mistake, leaving Polly very upset. Luckily, the adventurous bear turned up at Polly’s grandparents’ house complete with a new t-shirt and a label tied around his neck explaining that he had been found and posted back. So everyone was happy!

Here is Polly (below left) with Barnaby and her friend Sophia (also Year 1) , who is holding the fantastic diary Polly’s mother helped her to create while they were on holiday. You can see Barnaby looking a bit sorry for himself with his label on!

Teddies and other Bear Stories…

Our nursery pupils told a big crowd of parents, pupils and friends all about bears, in a lovely assembly this morning. Dressed in bear costumes, they sang a song and spoke out loud and clear as they described some things bears do. The children also showed us the beautiful teddy pictures they have been making and painting in bright colours. At the end, everyone had a chance to tell their families all about it!  Lots more photos will be on the blog tomorrow!
