Edward Bear

Edward Bear (Ursos Edwardos)
Edward Bear Species Information
This is an Edward Bear, one of our intrepid little species of bear.  They normally live in the staffroom but when children (or staff) take one to a new location they come back featuring on the photographs!  Some of these pictures can be seen in school and on our website (see below).

The 2015/2016 & 2016/2017 Edward Bear Challenge

During the period from July 2015 to July 2017 we tried to get Edward to as many different places as possible.
1. The Countries Challenge: In how many countries of the World can we get photos of an Edward?
2. The Counties Challenge: In how many counties of the UK can we get photos of an Edward?  Within this you can also visit Edward's Football Grounds Album
3. The Lincolnshire Challenge: From how many villages in Lincolnshire can we get photos of an Edward?

The photo must be e-mailed to school or given as hard copy to scan - these will then be added to Flickr albums (links to follow shortly)
An Edward must be at the location (no transposition of images)
An Edward does not have to be accompanied by a member of the school community
The school must incur no expense (so we can't just post him to loads of people)
Edwards cannot accompany children on unauthorised holidays
