**********************************

I’ve been a bit cheeky for this prompt! ¬†I asked my dear friend Ruth Chadbond at High Lawn Primary, Bolton if she had any ideas for a theme. She told me that her class were going to have a bears’ tea party so I asked my other dear friend Jane Hewitt if she had a photo I could use.

Well Jane is a very talented photographer ( you MUST get her wonderful book ‘Learning Through a Lens’) and she created this just for us!
