A POPULAR tale will be studied by youngsters in Portishead as part of their latest class topic.

Pupils at Trinity Primary School have begun studying their new topic entitled Lost and Found - Where do I Belong?

Throughout their work they will be comparing Portishead to London and exploring the adventures of Paddington Bear, the lovable character who is the star of the much-loved book by Michael Bond.

He is discovered by a couple sat on an old leather suitcase near the lost property office of the city train station and goes on to enjoy many adventures with them.

During their WOW day, held on Thursday to launch the topic, the youngsters studied maps, made marmalade sandwiches - a favourite of the popular bear - and also went on their own Paddington trail.
