Last week J came bouncing out of school with the dreaded class bear!
If you don’t know about the class bear let me explain.
The class bear “Rainbow Bear” as ours is called is what we used to call the class pet. You know a hamster or rabbit you had to look after & keep alive for the weekend. Nowadays though it’s a non living pet. You take home the bear on Friday, then on Monday morning (when you have to remember a dozen other things like PE kit, snack money, book bag) you take back the bear.
So all the children in school get a turn with the bear – The ones you don’t want to follow that have been on a some fancy trip or done really exciting things. Those you don’t want to follow because well you know the bear isn’t able to have a bath between his sleepovers.
Then there is the ones you don’t want to follow because the child has set a bar of writing in the book themselves.
This! This is the one I had to follow.
So J who hates writing decided on Sunday night he would write all of his entry! (for this I’m very proud of him)
Yes I’m aware That we have now become the one you don’t want to follow.
On Sunday evening we spent an hour printing pics out for the bears diary and spelling out the words J wanted to write.
The words Friggin Bear came to mind a few times.
The bear has gone back to school for now but as J & M are twins in the same class I’m sure he will be back soon.
