Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
On Wednesday 29 and Thursday 30 August, the Primary 1s went to Build-A-Bear to choose class mascot teddy bears.
It was a surprise trip so we did not know where we were going until we arrived – it was so exciting!! There were so many different teddy bears – and outfits too! Both classes chose a bear with lovely bright eyes and a cute button nose. But their bodies were all floppy and we needed to build them into proper teddy bears.
Then we took them to the stuffing machine to get plumped up. Now they started looking like real bears and they were so cuddly! Each of us chose a pink or a red heart to put into our bear so each one had 14 hearts altogether!
Next, we chose some clothes for our new bears. Both classes chose a sparkly dress, some knickers and a pair of pyjamas for night-time.
Now all our bears needed was a name. We thought up possibilities all the way back to school and after lunch, we took a vote on the best ones. P1X named their bear Snowy and P1Y voted for Rosa.
Over the year, everyone will have the opportunity to take their class bear home for a weekend and we will write up all the things we get up to in Snowy and Rosa’s diaries.
We love our bears!
