Bear and Hare – Creative Writing – Crossing the log bridge


Paige – As the hares ears went down, his tears floated down this thin fur. Hopping along the icy floor the hare kicked the thick snow that  slowly hit the towering trees. Underneath the glistening moon the hare hopped along the reflecting ice. As quietly as he could be the hare danced around the bears cave before gently putting his present down using fairy steps.


Victoria – Trudging across a dark tunnel, with an evening sky, as a hazy sky came up. Slowly a bear and his reflection in the icy waterway below wandered along. As he looked around there was not a lot of white freezing crunchy frost on the

Harry – Hurrying along to find the bear, passing over icy water by a slippery log. Kicking ice balls while  sprinting sadly over the slippery log the hare ran off to land!

Victoria – Then the young hare danced in such a jolly way, he ran he jumped, he was so thrilled. When he reached the large green tree at the end of the hill he stood up on his hind legs, and all he did was think about Christmas day memories and feeling the time come so much closer!

James M – Dancing over the hill the hare left the bear on his own, soon he reached the top of the hill. Standing tall at the top of the hill admiring the tall green Christmas tree the hare soon dashed down to meet all of the other animals A lot of memory’s where flooding back in to his brain.

Paige – With his ears sprung in the air the hare danced around in the snow. Like a spring he hopped around the bear with his nose stuck up in the air. Gazzing up to the tree the hare…
