And on our outing we went exploring in Riccarton Bush. We took our Gruffalo masks with us to act out parts of the story as we went.
|Everyone kept their eyes open as we walked along the past. What's that in the bushes???|
|Kereama spotted what looked like a Gruffalo footprint in a muddy puddle|
|Lockie was fascinated by the twisty branch that looked like a snake|
|Across the bridge....|
|We found a HUGE tree, I wonder if Owl's nest is at the top.|
|We found Snake! He was slithering across the seats.|
|A mouse took a stroll in the deep dark woods.|
|A Gruffalo! We found him! But he's not as tall as I expected...|
|Chris and Lockie make an impromptu puppet show with Fox and Owl|
|We found Mouse's house in a hole in a tree|
|Snake slithered up another tree|
|Another Gruffalo, hiding behind a tree!|
What a fantastic adventure we had at Riccarton Bush!
At school we also made some fantastic Gruffalo faces in art - I will try to remember to take a photo tomorrow to show you all.
