We're the Teddies, see up jump
Watch our feet go stomp, stomp, stomp
As we skip and run and play, happy
Now we've skipped and jumped and run.
Every Teddy's had her fun. Now it's time
for us to say, see you all next Teddy Day.
Opening Prayer: For all the strength we have to run and leap and play, for ears that hear and lips that speak, we thank you lord today.
Closing Prayer: Teddy time is over, listen while we pray, make us kind and helpful 'till we meet next day.
Teddy programme: The programme is based on a series of paws. These are not tests but were automatically given to every child who participates in all the clauses of the paws. The only exception being the Teddy badge which is presented on "shake a paw day".
