This week, a group of Year 4 pupils headed down to Hartshill Hayes to film their own version of The Gruffalo story. The pupils had read the story and discussed what happened and the characters involved. Armed with a copy of the book, some character puppets and an iPad, we were all set to go. It was a beautiful morning and The Hayes looked beautiful in the Spring sunshine, with a carpet of Bluebells just starting to unfurl. We are very lucky to have this beautiful space so close to school!

WildlifeKate showed everyone how to create mini scenes in the woods and how to use the character puppets and the iPads  to create mini scenes that told the story. The pupils would be using iMovie to link all the clips together.

We all really enjoyed this task outside in the woods and look forward to sharing our films when we finish them.
