World Book Day

 

In Nightingale classroom children learnt the story of The Gruffalo with actions. They then retold the story using puppets. It was great for children to work with other children from different classes and in different year groups.

After playtime, children designed a terrible creature of their own, taking inspiration from the character description of the Gruffalo.

Freya is dressed as goldilocks with her 3 bears.

 

 

 

In the afternoon, children created thought bubbles for characters from the story, using what they had learnt from the text. They also watched the video version of the story and we discussed similarities and differences between the book and the film.

Overall, we had a great day completing lots of Gruffalo activities!
