Oh help! Oh no! It's a Gruffalo school tea party at Grantham school




Youngsters at Bluecoat Meres Primary Academy, in Grantham, invited their parents to join them for a Gruffalo tea party last week.

The Year 1 pupils prepared a Gruffalo inspired feast to share, which included French fries to represent the Gruffalo’s terrible tusks and green grapes as his poisonous wart on his nose.

They also made sandwiches to encourage the Gruffalo to try something else on a slice of bread, instead of the mouse.

The aim of the tea party was to engage the children with books and develop a love of reading, language and vocabulary.

Year 1 teachers Charlie Gliddon and Amanda Stewart were pleased to see so many families getting involved.

Mrs Gliddon said: “It is always amazing to see the parents and children engaging in learning together as it has such a positive impact on the children and their learning.”

Imogen, 5, added: “It was fun. We got to eat lots of food and it helped us to remember what the Gruffalo looked like.”
