Last week was the first week of “big school” for some of the newest members of the GCC family. The Preps invited a special friend to class for the day to help celebrate this milestone. Prep Maroon was the “scouting party” and went exploring new areas of the College and came across the perfect spot for a Teddy Bear’s Picnic in the Nature Play area. We spread our picnic rugs in the shade and then it was time for stories and a treat. We nibbled on Tiny Teddy biscuits with our teddies and even Mrs Leary couldn’t resist the lure of a picnic in the shade and joined in.
Soon after, Prep White made their way to the picnic spot and had the same lovely time with Mrs Leary. Prep White went on a fun adventure going the long way around and even sang about “Going on a Bear Hunt” as they walked to their picnic. The teddies thought it was lovely, especially sharing Tiny Teddy biscuits. When they were back in class, Prep White did some special drawings of a teddy bear.
Prep Green also had fun with the song “Going on a Bear Hunt”. Their special time with teddy was within the Prep area, where the teachers had prepared a wonderful obstacle course adventure where the class had to navigate the obstacles (swishing through “snow” in the tunnel, etc) as they acted out the song. They were searching for the teddies that were hiding, with their cardboard binoculars, and had to check them off their lists when they were found.
We thought our teddies would be very tired after their big day at school. We heard they slept very well when they got home. Enjoy these photos. Well done on a fabulous First Week of Prep. Hooray!
