The Gruffalo

We began this half term by learning all about the Gruffalo!


We first met the Gruffalo when he made a huge mess in our classroom! We discovered his poisonous wart, purple prickles and terrible tusks but he was no where to be seen! We decided to follow his footprints and ended up in forest school where we met him and the little brown mouse for the very first time. The Gruffalo read a story all about his adventures through the deep dark wood and we came up with actions to help is remember his tale.


Later that day we developed our cutting skills by making Gruffalo headbands. We then became the Gruffalo characters and retold the story to the Year Two children as they had missed the Gruffalo's visit!


Over the next few weeks we completed lots of Gruffalo themed activities. We even made Gruffalo footprint cakes and wrote down the instructions for Year One to have a go too. We had lots of fun!
