Jenny & The Bear Health & Wellbeing Programme for Schools
The Winners are St Pauls’ Primary School
We are delighted to share that Primary 1 from St. Paul’s Primary, Foxbar have won the ‘Name the Teddy’ competition for Renfrewshire as part of the ‘Jenny and the Bear’ programme. The programme, for children in P1, aims to increase awareness of the effects of second hand smoke on children. The children named the bear, Lolly, and are so excited to have received their own certificate and teddy bear to take home. A wonderful achievement! Well done boys and girls!
The Jenny & the Bear resource is a story which is part of a coordinated programme and aims to increase awareness about the effects of second hand smoke on children and what parents/carers can do to ensure their children are not exposed to its harmful effects. The story of the little girl and her teddy offers the opportunity to explore the themes of secondhand smoke, a favourite toy, rewarding positive behaviours and consideration for others.
The programme is aimed at Primary 1 classes and consists of the story being read to the class followed by a classroom activity to agree a name for the bear in the story, which is then entered into the competition to win a Teddy Bear mascot for their classroom. All children who take part in the programme are given a booklet version of the story to take home. This programme is run annually to all primary Schools.
