  • PSED- How does baby bear feel ? 🐻
    This week in Early years for the book Goldilocks and the three bears we have been thinking how baby baby felt when he saw that all his porridge had gone ,how he may have felt when he saw his chair broken as well thinking how he may feel getting out in the forest with his mummy and daddy for a walk to keep active. The children then created facial expressions by adding eyes, nose and a mouth to baby bear to represent how he felt in their opinion.     Share this:Click to share on Twitter
