Hi, I’m Alex the bear from Berlin. Find out how I met my friend Ben, and what I’m doing in the UK!

It was a warm summer’s day. I was on holiday in Portugal, when I met a friendly bear on the beach.

“Who are you? Where do you come from?”, I asked him.

“I’m Ben, and I come from London”, he said, and told me lots of interesting stories about his home country.

It sounded like such a great place, with so many nice children, that I decided to come and see for myself!

I’m currently travelling around schools in the UK, whilst my friend Ben visits schools in Germany. Together, we teach children lots of fun things about our home countries, and help them learn and play together, too!

Have a look at some of the schools I have visited so far!
