The Gruffalo Display

Age Range: 3 - 7
By: Ann Plowman

During a cross curricular week, Year 1 took “The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson as our theme. As well as writing Gruffalo menus, we built a giant gruffalo from boxes, papier mache and fur fabric. We then placed him in our entrance hall surrounded by trees and toy characters from the story. To complete the scene we added a compiled CD of woodland noises, hidden in the display. Children of all ages enjoyed the interactive display.
