Someone has been on our playground and he has huge footprints. We tried to figure out who it was but his footprints led us to the hedge. We wondered who it might be. Perrys our school panda kept watch and this is what he had to say…
I spy a creature with…
terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.
He has knobbly knees, and turned-out toes, and
a poisonous wart at the end of his nose.
His eyes are orange, his tongue is black, he has purple prickles all over his back!
Can you guess who this creature might be?
It is the Gruffalo! We enjoyed text mapping and reciting the story. We also made Gruffalo houses too.
