In Nursery and Reception we have been reading the story ‘The Gruffalo’ by Julia Donaldson. All of our learning was based around the story and characters. In Nursery, the children arranged shapes to create their own Gruffalo character and we looked closely at the textures of different materials to collage the five key characters. In Reception, the children peeled, chopped and rubbed different ingredients to make their own Gruffalo crumble. The children followed a recipe and used cups (non-standard units) to measure accurately. In Forest School we used clay and other natural materials to create Gruffalo tree creatures.
We look forward to you joining us on our Autumn walk to Birchanger Woods on Monday morning.
