The Gruffalo

This week we have been learning through the story of the Gruffalo. We have been playing in our roleplay area which has been turned into a wood. We have pretended to be the characters in the story. The Gruffalo, the mouse, the snake, the fox and the owl.
We have been learning new Jolly phonics sounds ai, ie and oa this week. Keep practising then at home! We have been playing lots of games to help us blend our sounds together.
Our number work this week has been all about apples. We have measured how long we are in apples. Look at the pictures this person was 17 apples tall. The tallest person was 20 apples tall!

We tasted different apples and put an apple on the tree to show which kind we liked the best.

We also make a pictogram of our favourite Gruffalo characters. We used stickers to add to our pictogram.
It is fireworks night tonight and we are all really excited about it. In the ICT this week we practised using Pivot and made an animation of a colourful fireworks night.


Today we have looked at our blog. Please leave us a comment. We will be looking at our blog every week.
