Along with their work on shape and number and following all their Speed Sound sessions, the Reception children talked about the Gruffalo’s friend, the kind witch, who invited all her animal friends to share her broom until it was too heavy and it snapped in two!  The children were challenged to make up spells and potions, to construct broomsticks and to retell the story!  
They rose to the challenge magnificently, spells were created and even the teacher was turned into a frog!  Explosions took place and incredible brooms were constructed ... on International Lego Day, some amazing Lego broomsticks were built. 
We have lots of budding storytellers who retold the story with great aplomb!  
A fantastic week of learning at home!  Well done everyone!
