OH HELP OH NO IT’S A GRUFFALO – To support the learning of our Enchanted Forest topic we visited Delamere Forest. When learning about a forest there is nothing better than actually being there, getting stuck in and investigating real life trees, plants and mini beasts. It was a fantastic learning opportunity for Year 1 to label real trees, use natural forest materials to build their own trees and experience the forest first hand. The Gruffalo trail was a fantastic link to our literacy work as we have used The Gruffalo book as our focus. We have written postcards to the characters, letters to Julia Donaldson and looked at the rhyming patterns of the much loved book.Searching through the woods for The Gruffalo made all the children’s Enchanted Forest learning exciting and relevant!
