The Great Paper Caper

This week the school was visited by a naughty bear. Mr Bear had used all of the school paper to practise making paper aeroplanes for a competition. The school was left with bits of paper everywhere, trees, logs and little animals who wanted to see what was going on. The bear left a letter for every class and Miss Cahill. The bear asked Miss Cahill for some help. He had made a mistake. He didn’t realise all the other animals were so upset that he had used all of the paper and they called the police!

Every class was given a special writing task from the bear from letters to reports and defence speeches!

Our Lady’s children have been a great help to the bear…watch this space for examples of our work!!
