Dear Parents/Carers,

Bob, Ted and Bell are our class teddy bears!

They have a diary in which we would like your child to record their adventures! Your child might like to take some photos, draw some pictures, or write in the diary about what they did with them (this might be pretend writing or supported, emergent writing where letters are recognisable.) Whilst your child will need some support to record in their diaries, please encourage them to have a go independently (we are more than happy to just receive a drawing/photo of the bears and some “pretend” writing!)  Each time the bears return to class, we will be encouraging the children to share their diary entries.

Please could you ensure that your child returns the bear to school on Monday so that another child can take him/her home for the weekend on the Friday.
