A mouse took a stroll through the deep dark wood...

Julia Donaldson’s well-loved story ‘The Gruffalo’ has provided an exiting stimulus for the children, both in the indoor and outdoor learning environments. The children have been practising and developing their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills too. Gruffalo themed jigsaws and puzzles have been offered to the children and many of them have spent time trying to manipulate the pieces to fit them together. The Gruffalo threading was particularly popular with the children. Threading encourages the use of the pincer grasp between thumb and forefinger, and naturally strengthens the small hand muscles that are vital for holding a pencil.
