Barnaby Bear at the canal

Barnaby Bear goes to the canal


A new resource produced by Wild Over Waterways helps parents and teachers explore canals safely with young children.

The downloadable PDF shows Barnaby taking part in a variety of activities at a canal including birdwatching, painting and fishing. It also provides ideas for learning about canals in the classroom.

The website also contains lots of information about water safety to help you plan a visit.


Unit 1: Introducing Barnaby Bear to our School and Local Area

A transition unit for Reception/KS1

This unit was adapted/influenced by the Year 1 QCA Scheme of Work: Around Our School - The Local Area (QCA 1998). It is intended to be adapted by each teacher to suit their own class/school circumstances.

We hope that you will like some of the ideas we suggest, but do make them your own - you may just want to focus on your school or local area for example. Let us know how you get on!
