This term the children have been having lots of fun and learning through activities based on Julia Donaldson’s beloved book, The Gruffalo. We have used role play, small world and story stones to really get to know the story well. We have had so much fun following the Gruffalo trail and retelling the story in Forest School!

One day, the children got a big surprise when the Gruffalo came to visit in our playground! He was very shy though, and ran away when he saw the children watching him! Maybe he will come back one day, if we make him some special Gruffalo food… he might even leave us a Gruffalo egg to hatch into our very own Gruffalo’s child. Watch this space!
