We’re Going On A Bear Hunt

The morning group from nursery went on our end of year trip to Nell Bank in Ilkley on Tuesday 7th May 2019.  We were excited before we even got on the bus.

When we got there, we listened to the instructions from Paul and Megan from the centre.  We knew the story of The Bear Hunt and we followed the trail to find a bear going through Middleton Woods, squelching through mud and looking for bear prints. We joined in with the repetitive refrains from the story as we explored the areas.

Later we had fun in the water area sending water down chutes, up spirals and around water wheels.  We went into the woodland to make our own mini bear homes, then we investigated the area for minibeasts and found lots of creepy crawlies.  Finally we went pond dipping using nets to find creatures underwater.
