The Barnaby Bear collection of resources offers an innovative approach to exploring the wider world with young children. Written by teachers, the materials use Barnaby as a starting point for introducing a global dimension to the primary classroom. Building on the QCA scheme of work ‘Where in the world is Barnaby Bear?’ the resources stimulate exciting geography at key stage 1, at the same time providing rich contexts through which young children may develop language skills.
The collection comprises:
Available as a soft glove puppet and as a taller bear for which a selection of outfits are available. Purchase Glove Puppet >>>
A series of big books for classroom use
These combine accessible text with beautiful illustrations, plus four pages of practical suggestions for classroom activities and a rationale with clear links with the national curriculum.
A linked series of little books
These take the big book stories further, providing differentiated readers for use with individual children, small groups or the whole class.
The Barnaby range also includes DVDs and videos of the BBC television series (visit the BBC's Barnaby Bear pages to purchase these), games, posters, various electronic resources and a 'Well Done' stamp.
