“We are going on a bear hunt, we’re going to catch a big one!”
This term we have been reading and doing activities related to the book “We’re going on a bear hunt” by Michael Rosen. All the activities done during the outing were linked to the book. Prior to the outing, we have been learning the different actions that we can do when we ‘go through’ the different landscapes read about in the book. We’ve also done activities such as making bear puppets and masks, sequencing of the events in the book, as well as playing treasure hunt games around the classroom.
This outing we had activities which let us experience the same bear hunt fun we had in the classroom but with our daddy and mummy around. It was also extra fun when we had friends from both Eagle and Puffin classes playing together!
We all also enjoyed completing a treasure hunt and an obstacle course together. There were many things to find around the school, but with the help of our clues, we did it! The obstacle course made us feel like we were going on a mini bear hunt, we went through the swishy swashy grass and even found bears in the dark gloomy cave. The outing ended with recess time in the café for everyone - time to rest, have a snack and drink some water after all that fun.
Thank you daddy and mummy for coming for this “We’re going on a bear hunt” activity day with me!
The WeCAN EIP programme was developed in 2004 as a key component of Project Platinum to meet the needs of young children on the autism spectrum and their families in Singapore. The programme develops a scalable intervention package that can be implemented across Singapore and beyond for children on the autism spectrum between the ages of 18mths and 6 years. It also provides autism specific intervention for young children with the diagnosis of autism, in order to help them gain functional and independent skills for more successful transition.
