This week, Reception B students of Laude The British School of Vila-real have enjoyed acting out Michael Rosen’s “We’re going on a Bear Hunt”, English children’s novelist and poet and author of 140 books.
For a quarter of a century, readers have been ‘swishy-swashying’ and ‘splash-sploshing’ through the award-winning favourite picture book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury.
The book won the overall Nestlé Smarties Book Prize in 1989 and also won the 0–5 years category. The publisher, Walker Books, celebrated the Work’s 25th anniversary in 2014 by breaking a Guinness World Record for the ‘Largest Reading Lesson’.
We emphasise “active learning” and personal “hands-on” experiences for our Early Years’ students, focusing on developing the learning process through free, directed and creative play, as well as through more formal activities. Technology and innovative education are important tools that support our teaching methodology, and allow us to make learning both creative and engaging for our children.
