National Book Week

We are celebrating ‘National Book Week’ this week by running the theme of the Gruffalo throughout our playgroup sessions.  We have been making play dough characters from the story, colouring /painting Gruffalos and we have even made a Gruffalo crumble which was very tasty.  During our pre-school sessions we are exploring the classic tale ‘The Three Little Pigs’ through art and maths activities, making houses from bricks, straw, twigs and lego and by building giant houses from the story and then using these to act out the tale.  We will also have a representative from Usborne Books with us on Thursday 3rd November from 11am and parents are welcome to come into playgroup to browse the selection of books on offer and perhaps pick up a few early Christmas gifts.
