Elementary 2 really enjoyed their special teddy bear day and it was great to see how interested the children were when Miss Sylvia came to share her knowledge about brown bears from Finland.
The children learnt about the natural habitats for these animals and that they are omnivores as they like eating meat and berries.
Miss Sylvia shared with the children dried berries that she brought all the way from Finland when she visited the country during the summer.
The children also watched a short YouTube clip and loved seeing a brown bear cub, the children were very engaged in learning what other animals live in the pine forest of Finland such as wolves, reindeers and elks.
We had lots of fun and hopefully we will have another teddy bear day in the near future as Elementary 2 loved having special visitors.
