We’re going on a bear hunt!

I had a lot of fun going on a bear hunt near my home. You can see what I got up to and join in with the familiar story below. I hope you have fun going on your own bear hunt this week!

A little peek into P1!

The video below gives you a chance to have a look at some of our favourite places in primary one.


We’re Dancing on a Bear Hunt

Our dance teacher Ms Robertson has created a dance class for our new Primary Ones joining us next year around the story ‘We are going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen. It looks like so much fun! You can see the class by clicking the link below-
