Barnaby Bear's Adventures

 

 

Each week, Barnaby will choose a child to go home with for the weekend. Barnaby loves to go on adventures and loves learning about... GEOGRAPHY. If you go to the park or beach, church or a friend's house - take Barnaby with you - he likes to explore new places! Barnaby Bear has his very own scrapbook so that your child can write about your awesome adventures together. It would be great if you could take some photos or even draw some pictures of places you've visited.

 

We can't wait to hear all about your time with Barnaby Bear!

Each week at our Stand Up A Good One assembly, our teachers recognise our efforts. Congratulations to our Nightingale SAUGO Award recipients for Autumn 1:

After an exhausting summer setting up Nightingale class ready for year 1, Barnaby and Milton have set off on a well deserved holiday. Their first stop was in the capital city of England, London. We've enjoyed learning all about London, it's famous landmarks and people and history.
