Good Morning Reception

How are you today?


This morning we are going to start a new story.


Have a look at the front cover (before reading the title).




What animal is in the picture?

What is the weather like?

Where is the polar bear?

How is the bear feeling?

What colour is the sky?

What do you think the story is ​going to be about? why?

What is the bear thinking? ​why?


Before you read the story 

Your challenge for today is to do a bit of predicting.

I would like you to draw a polar bear and write what you think the story will be about or what will happen in the story. 



I think the story is about a baby polar bear that gets lost in the snow. 


Once you have completed your work, I would like you to read the story with your adult. 


I have added a ppt with the story on below and a video too!


I look forward to reading your predictions.yes


Enjoy your morning.

Final Challenge


This afternoon I would like you to continue your Arctic research. 
In our story the three bears lived in an igloo. 


Your task is to make an igloo and see what you can find out about them. 


We would normally have lots of fun with sugar cubes

(building igloos) in class


What could you use to make an igloo? 


It can be as big or as small as you like.

You could use material, cushions,marshmallows, card, cotton wool, paper, boxes, sugar cubes, play-do, Lego etc.


See how inventive you can be.enlightened
