Hello everyone. Are you all enjoying being back at school? I was not a happy bear when my alarm clock went off at seven o'clock on Tuesday morning, but it was so lovely to see all my friends at school and listen to all the tales they had to tell about their adventures during the summer holidays, that I soon forgot about my early start.
If you are feeling like a grumpy bear about going back to school, these should cheer you up.
