The Gruffalo is probably the best known fiction book in schools today. However, the Wilderness Wood version draws heavily on the actual creatures to be found in any woodland – mice, fox, owl, snake, snail, squirrel.
The children will follow a trail, discovering Gruffalo riddles. They have to solve the riddles and carry out the activity associated with it. This might involve discovering some real animal artefacts such as nuts or snail shells; making something – such as a mouse den; or remembering the next part of the Gruffalo story.
Time permitting we will have a go at creating our own Gruffalo story rope and try retelling the story to each other – using items found in the woods around us.
