Room One’s inquiry this term is the question ‘What are our stories of the past and how can we tell them?’ We connected to the past by way of our teddy bears. We invited our buddies from Room 5 to join us and we each brought along a special old teddy or soft toy. We enjoyed listening to their stories, followed by a delicious food at our teddy bear’s picnic! Our buddies even made the bread rolls themselves!
