Gruffalo Crumble Hunt

Group 1 from Oaks and Firs thoroughly enjoyed hunting through the forest this week, to find lots of different natural ingredients to make a big Gruffalo Crumble!

The¬†children had to decide for themselves which ingredient (fir cones, spikey reeds, bark, conkers etc) they thought matched each Gruffalo body part (knobbly knees, claws, tusks, prickles etc). But first they had to find them…

Also hidden were 4 different coloured bottles of ‘magic’ water, which helped to mix the crumble¬†together. Everyone was keen to help add these to the buckets!

Of course, anything else that the children found along the way was added too. One group added sticks and leaves, the other thought that a few spade fulls of soil would taste great!

When all the ingredients had been collected, we all gathered together to think of some magical words. Everyone took turns at mixing the ingredients all up, whilst we all shouted out our magical words.

We even pretended to have a little taste!

What a lovely, fun and language-rich time we had. Well done Group 1, it was a pleasure (as always) to share the morning with you.

    The photos suggest a fun & interesting time was had by all & the Gruffalo crumble sounds yummy! Great initiative linking the Gruffalo story with outdoor activities. The little man will enjoy seeing the photos of their latest Forest adventures.
