Interviewing Bear

We experienced being journalists when we interviewed Bear.

This week, we read more of our book for this term, 'I Want my Hat Back.'  We compared the pages where Bear is dreaming about his lost hat, describing him as feeling downhearted and exasperated to the page where he remembers seeing his hat and feels livid and furious!

We used the 5Ws to ask Bear some questions to find out exactly what happened and why it happened so that we are prepared to write our own newspaper reports on the incident.

We listened carefully to what Bear had to say.





We wrote down all of the factual information bear gave us.














Here's some of what Bear had to say during the interview! (Mrs Rushen will be receiving an award for Best Supporting Actress!!)




After the interview, we had the chance to meet Bear and Rabbit who stole Bear's hat!

Meeting Bear and Rabbit!

    We can’t wait to see the newspaper articles you create from your journalist work! Once again Mrs Rushen, a brilliant performance! You had Merlins captivated with your acting talents!

    Bear would like to say thank you to Merlins for making him feel so welcome. He enjoyed his cuddles and kisses and hopes he will be invited to their picnic at the end of term!! He's rather partial to honey and the odd rabbit.........(Well he did steal his hat!) Have a great weekend little ones. Come on England!! Mrs Rushen xx
