Today our school has been celebrating the work of Julia Donaldson and her book The Gruffalo. The children have been looking at the story and the characters that the mouse meets. They have been talking about how clever the mouse was but also discussing the twist at the end when they really meet the Gruffalo! The children then brought the story to life by using actions to retell the story to their Reception buddies. To end our day, we went into the Den of Tranquility for a mug of hot chocolate and a bedtime story!
