Cherry Class meets the Gruffalo!

23rd February 2018

This week we have been finding out about the 'Gruffalo'. He is a terrible creature with terrible claws and a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.

We had a go at retelling the story in the correct order.
We each chose a character to be and then spoke the lines as we acted out the story. We were all very good at this.
We also worked together to retell the story outside.
We are trying to build the tree so that the owl can escape from the Gruffalo.
We had a go at drawing pictures of the Gruffalo and the mouse together using chalk.
We also made Gruffalo masks using paper and glue.
Our masks are very scary, like the Gruffalo. We worked hard to put on his horns, eyes, teeth and prickles.
Outside we created a path to lead us through the pretend woods so that we could escape from the Gruffalo. We had to be very careful and balance on the track and try not to fall off.
Like the fox in the story at the end of our path was an underground house, which we went through to escape from the Gruffalo!

In our Maths lessons this week we have been playing games involving taking away. We had to take pirates off from their ship and people off from an aeroplane or a bus. We have had a fun week of learning.
