Jenny and the bear

Jenny and the Bear Promotional Image

The Jenny and 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 programme is aimed at Primary 1 classes and consists of a 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 will be given a booklet version of the story to take home. 

The second hand smoke message also links with the Scottish Government national “Take it right outside” campaign.  See www.rightoutside.org for further information. 

If you would like your Primary 1 classes to participate in the programme please compete the registration form below by no later than Monday 19th December 2022.  

What’s next?

Classes who submit a registration form will be sent out a competition pack in January containing: 

  • A link to the Jenny and the Bear video 
  • Individual Jenny and the Bear booklets for pupils to take home 

You will also be provided with a competition form for our ‘Name the teddy’ competition. Alternatively, you can enter the competition below.
