The children have been very creative this week making their very own Gruffalo homes. I am sure you will agree they are fabulous! We used the homes to act out The Gruffalo story. We have wonderful story tellers in the class.

On Tuesday we had a lovely morning on our Farm to Fork trip at Tesco.
We looked at the various fruit and vegetables and discussed healthy food options.
The children (and adults) were shocked at the amount of sugar in different foods.
We also had an opportunity to taste fruit, vegetables and bread. They were very hungry after a long walk!!!
Here are a selection of photos from the morning.
