Year R have really enjoyed the Gruffalo topic.
They were very excited when the Gruffalo came to the classroom, he left footprints and mess everywhere! The children did some excellent writing in their books as a result.
Over the term the children created their own Gruffalo pictures. First they painted his body, then they added his facial features ( his terrible tusks and terrible teeth) and finally they added the rest of his body features (his knobbly knees and purple prickles). Have a look at the finished art. Didn’t they do a good job?
