PUPILS learnt the ‘bear’ necessities about their favourite cuddly toy.

Year one students from Blackfell Primary School, in Washington, took part in a Teddy Bear Story school’s workshop at Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, led by the museum’s learning team.

As part of the session, which coincides with the Teddy Bear Story exhibition running at the venue, the youngsters learnt about the history of teddy bears with a short talk before exploring the exhibition.

They also enjoyed some teddy-themed stories and made their own festive teddy bear and bear bunting.

Jennie Lambert, learning officer at the museum said: “This was our first learning session based around the Teddy Bear Story exhibition, which is already really popular with visitors of all ages.

“The children really enjoyed their museum visit and learning about the history of their favourite toy.”

•Teddy Bear Story runs until February 24.
