The Gruffalo

What a fabulous day!

To start the session, Rowans listened to ‘The Gruffalo’. You can hear the story here…

Then they chose from different Gruffalo activities…

Like making a natural art picture of one of the story characters. (Please click the pictures to make them bigger)

…or making a log pile just like the one Snake lives in

…or collecting teeny tiny things, for Mouse to eat.

“I’m shaking my food all round this tree” “Why are you doing that?” “So Mouse can find it later and eat it all up”…What a good idea!

…or making a shelter big enough to fit the Gruffalo in. In fact, it was big enough to fit ALL of the class inside!

And just to finish a perfect, happy, hard working morning, we saw a brilliant example of problem solving, team work and cooperation.

“Come on-your turn” (child couldn’t get up onto the swing…) “Right-you hold the back”…”Ok, I’ve got it”…”Now I hold the front”…”No, that’s not good!”…”You hold the seat, I’ll pull him on” “YES! Now we can push!”

      Good question Max!! Lots and lots and lots? Maybe we should measure it next time? Do you think our forest is big enough for Dragons (that lay purple spotted eggs) and Gruffalo’s, as well as for Langley children?
