If you only do one thing

We know time is tight, so here is just one activity you could do with your pupils before or after watching this broadcast. 

How would you get the bear off the chair? LIT 0-31a, ENG 1-31a

Mouse tries everything he can think of to get the bear off the chair, but nothing works. Can your pupils think of any ways they might try to get the bear off the chair? Ask them to write a picture book or comic showing all the things they would do. They can come up with a new character or use Mouse.
