Teddy Bear Fun at Colchester High School

Over 65 young children and their Teddy Bears enjoyed a fabulous morning at a Teddy Bear Picnic on Saturday hosted by Colchester High School. Open to the whole community, the young visitors enjoyed a wide variety of fun Teddy Bear themed arts and crafts, cooking, music, reading, and sports.

Colchester High School were also joined for the event by their Forest School partner, Muddy Boots who created a carousel of child led activities around the school including a mud kitchen so children could make teddy a meal, a happa zome to make a natural resource teddy tag, and mud paint to paint his picture.

Mr Young, Principal said “We would just like to say thank you to all the families that attended our Early Years Teddy Bear Picnic event. At Colchester High School we pride ourselves on our close knit family environment and this was a lovely opportunity for us to expand our community for the day.  We were also very pleased to partner with Muddy Boots Forest School who regularly organize Forest School activities for our own pupils and who provided the children at the event with such a wide range of outdoors activities to enjoy.  I would also like to thank all the pupils that also assisted at the event and took such great care of all our visitors”.
