A Gruffalo! What’s a Gruffalo?

We received a letter from a neighbour who had seen some unusual sighting and heard some strange noises. We decided to go and investigate…

We put on our listening ears and went to have a look.

We discovered 10 purple prickles

We had fun exploring and making our own tracks using different tools, just like the Gruffalo.

The Gruffalo sent us a letter asking us if we could make his favourite food…’Gruffalo Crumble’.

We carefully chopped the apples and helped to mix the crumble topping.

We then tasted it. It was delicious!

We have been recalling the story of the Gruffalo through a story map.

We have used the pictures and some actions to help us remember it.


We have had fun making changes to our story maps and giving the Gruffalo a different appearance.










We have enjoyed creating representations of the Gruffalo using a range of materials such as paper, paint, conkers and even coffee flavoured playdough!
