The day the teddy bears had their picnic

On Friday 8th June, parents and carers at Lewin organised a lovely teddy bear’s picnic as a fundraising activity for the preschool on Streatham Common. The children met in the Rookery for music, fun and games before embarking on a treasure hunt across the common with prizes for all! We then enjoyed a teddy bear raffle before sitting down to a picnic. A beautiful sunny afternoon was rounded off with a special reading of We’re Going On a Bear Hunt and of course, lots and lots of bubbles. Grand total to be revealed, but with over 40 tickets sold we hope we have raised lots of funds!

A HUGE thanks to all the parents and carers who drove this wonderful afternoon of memory-making. Please enjoy a few photos from the afternoon.
