We're Going On A Bear Hunt

8 June 2017

School kids and grandparents in the foyer of The National Theatre yesterday. A first theatrical experience for many. There were over 700 at each show and they had a great time.

Melbourne Grammar Prep Teacher, Maryanne Lockton, told us about their follow up back at school-

"My class drew their favourite part and we wrote a class recount. Their favourite parts were the bear, the water guns and river and the ice storm. Tomorrow, we are innovating the text and choosing a different animal or obstacle to write about eg: We’re going on a dragon hunt...Uh! Oh! Fire. Hot, flaming fire!  

What fun and how creative teachers are!

3. Eliminate distractions, like screens

4. Let them decide how much they should eat

5. Serve one meal for the whole family ( for teaching this would be one theme, different approaches)

6. Stay calm
