Term 2

English

This term we will be studying “The Gruffalo” by Julia Donaldson.

 

We will be looking at the story in lots of different ways. Some children will be writing stories and copying/tracing letters from the story in different ways e.g. using playdough, some children will use a sensory approach to learn about the different characters and all of Gold class will be taking part in role play and Art based activities. We will be following instructions and using our cooking skills to make Gruffalo crumble. The link below is to the official Gruffalo website where you can enjoy games and activities with your child.
