The Bear Under the Stairs

This week we have been reading ‘The Bear Under the Stairs’ By Helen Cooper. We brought the story to life by having a bear in the cupboard. The children really thought that there was a bear there. They drew him lots of pictures and he drew them a picture back just like in the story. He was very sorry for scaring them when we went to the cupboard. On Friday he wrote a sign saying that he had gone away. The children were brave and looked in the cupboard and to their surprise the bear had left them a gift – a teddy bear! They were so happy.
