We have been so busy doing lots of different activities based around our focus book, The Gruffalo.
Week 1 : we listened to the story and then chose the adjectives that best described the gruffalo. We then had a go at painting our own gruffalo's and then wrote some words in our english books to describe him. We also described different characters in the story. Finally, we designed our own imaginary creatures and wrote some sentences to describe them.
Week 2: We listened to the story again but this time we focused on retelling the events. We made a mouse story wheel and used it to retell the story. Then we looked at some character descriptions in the form of short poems and then had a go at writing poems ourselves in small groups.
During the 2 weeks, we have taken part in so many different activities such as making different characters from the story; using puppets to act out the story, completing playdo challenges; role playing a gruffalo cafe and more!
