They went on a ‘bear hunt’ following a route taken by characters in a novel by Michael Rosen

A local infant school has raised over £850 by hosting a sponsored event with activities based on a children’s book.

Riverview Infant School, in Gravesend, ran the event called We’re Going On A Bear Hunt after the 1989 novel by Michael Rosen, with the aim of raising money for the school.

Joanne Towens, a member of the school’s Parent Teacher Association, who organised the event, said: “It was a fantastic day with all 12 classes in the school taking part.”

The event on Friday followed the outline of Mr Rosen’s book, which is about five chidren who go out with their dog to hunt a bear, but realise the real animal isn’t as cuddley as their toy versions.

The school children followed a route which took them through a grassy field, across a river, through the forest, jumping in muddy pubddles, and then through an imaginary snow storm which led them to a bear cave.
