For our class topic we have been looking at different stories. We are currently reading stories from the author Julia Donaldson.
Our first Julia Donaldson story was ‘Room on the Broom’. This was a whole class favourite! We explore our books through different lessons including Attention Autism and speaking and listening. We did lots of activities with this story but we all enjoyed going for a ride on a broom with all the characters and making chocolate broomsticks.
Our next story was ‘Monkey puzzle’ which has lots of different animals. We made a colourful scene adding in all the animals and helped them find their parents.
Our last story will be ‘The Gruffalo’. This is a great story and you can watch it as well as read it, it is currently a short film on the BBC. We will be posting lots of activity ideas on our class twitter page.
Here are a few craft activities from Pinterest linked to The Gruffalo:
