  3. Did you manage this? How did it go? I'm going to be teaching The Gruffalo to German speaking 7-8-year-olds in a couple of weeks for 10 weeks.

    It seems to me that the themes that can come out of it are:

    prepositions resulting in a Gruffalo map
    emotions/facial expressions
    body parts -- animals and humans (as a spin-off)
    rhyming words
    a very basic character study
    revision of colours

    What did you get out of it? I'd really appreciate any suggestions or ideas.

    Many thanks,

    Lucy
