"Learning To Achieve"

Spring 1 "The Big Freeze"

Enjoy this sensory story about a hungry Polar Bear trying to find some food to eat. Use as many objects as possible for the children to interact with and feel. Be imaginative and resourceful and adapt using what you have around the house. e.g. Use a teddy bear instead of Polar bear as they both have fur and therefore the 'feel' would be similar. You could also use some cotton wool for your child to feel: 'A big bear with white fur.'
Open this link below and you be able to share the story. You also will see a table to help you find the resources. Have fun and enjoy with your child, adapting as imaginatively as possible!!
