Little Acorns have been refining their acting skills by taking on the role of the mouse, snake, fox, owl or Gruffalo and acting out scenes from the story. They were thinking carefully about how to use their facial expressions and changing their body positions to best reflect their character. A few children also remembered to include speech in their performance by using words from the story to enhance their scene. The children were then questioned about how the character might be feeling or what they might be thinking. It was a great activity to see how much they have understood the story and it was clear to see how much they have enjoyed learning about The Gruffalo.
