A group of 8 pupils from a Year 2 class in Swansea took part in this 17 week project. The aim was to develop their literacy and numeracy skills through physical activity. A fun and active approach was taken to all activities based around the book “We’re going on a Bear Hunt”. The school made use of their hall, their playing fields, their Secret Garden and went on various trips in the local community including a farm, a park and Dan Yr Ogof Caves.
Data was collected at the beginning and at the end of the project and excellent progress was made by all children. Due to this, the school decided to implement some of the ideas throughout the Foundation Phase. A hall timetable was created and each class had two sessions available each week to use the space and resources to learn in a more active way.
