Week commencing 25th January 2021


This week we are reading The Gruffalo’s Child by Julia Donaldson.

The Gruffalo's Child by Julia Donaldson

📖   As you listen to the story can you spot the parts that are the same as ‘The Gruffalo’ story we read last week?
✏️   Can you draw a picture of a fox 🦊, a nut 🌰, a log 🪵 and a twig and write a label for each? 


The Gruffalo’s Child found lots of footprints in the snow...

  • In your garden or on your daily walk can you find any footprints 👣 🐾? The Nature Detective website has a good guide for prints you may find (click on picture below to take you to the website). 
  • Put on your wellies and tread in a puddle and make wet footprints on the path. 
  • Ask an adult to help you with foot painting 👣 🎨 
  • Look at pictures of animal 🐾 footprints, can you have a go at drawing/painting or making them out of playdough.  

Make your own Gruffalo’s Child, click on the photo to take you to the website. 


On Purple Mash a 2Do has been set for you to draw your own Gruffalo taking a walk through the deep dark woods. Can you draw a Gruffalo’s child too?



This week we are continuing our train adventure 🚂! We will be practising some special train moves. We will be practising the following movements: 

  • Stand on the spot and move your arms forwards and backwards keeping your body still and straight. 
  • March on the spot lifting your knees up high.
  • See if you can march on the spot whilst moving your arms forwards and backwards at the same time! 
  • Try to walk forwards and backwards in a straight line with your eyes open, then try it with your eyes closed!
