The Gruffalo

We are reading our favourite books which the children brought in for World Book Day. Lots of the children chose the story of ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson.

It has been an exciting week in the story of ‘The Gruffalo’. Houses have been designed and built for the animals in the story.






Maps designed to help the Mouse escape from the Gruffalo through the woods.


We even measured the snake living in the log pile house and found out he was more than 200 cubes long. Well done, this took a long time and fantastic concentration.

Other children helped to count using the beadstrings to keep track of how many the girls were up to.

The children worked out it was much easier and quicker to count in 10’s than in 1’s.




The cafe have been serving special Gruffalo food such as ‘scrambled snake’, ‘Owl ice cream’ and ‘roasted fox’.

A camp has been set up out side and all the animals have been spotted throughout the week.
