And the winner of our Gruffalo Explorers schools competition is Oxford Road Community School, Reading
They worked hard to build a giant Gruffalo mud head! We felt this was the most creative entry, very well done.
The runners up are...
Moorside Primary School, Lancaster.
The reception class devoted a full week to Gruffalo Explorers – they ran story time sessions, created large natural mud collages, and had Gruffalo free play in the woods! Well done!
Ysgol Glanwydden primary school, Llandudno:
The reception class went on a Gruffalo Explorers nature hunt, complete with a map they created. They collected bark, flowers, feathers and leaves along the way which they used to create pictures back in the classroom. They also made a giant Gruffalo crumble.
Bensham Grove Nursery School, Gateshead:
Their entry was a folder of photographs showing the reception class engaged in Gruffalo Explorers dress up, tasting Gruffalo crumble, playing with puppets, singing and reading!
St Bede’s Primary School, Marske by the Sea:
The Reception class have an outdoor classroom where they made Gruffalo Explorers puppets, a large Gruffalo Explorers painting, and a snake log pile. Their end of year assembly was all about the Gruffalo too.
Summerfield Primary School, Leeds:
Key Stage 1 children collected twigs, bark, leaves and even bananas skins from their playground to create a very large Gruffalo.
Walsall Wood Primary School:
These large (A1 in size) Gruffalo collages were sent with a lovely note saying how much the Gruffalo had helped with the reading progress of their pupils.
