Stick Man

Today Gruffalo and Paddington class have been to Forest School. We have been listening to the story ‘Stick Man’ by Julia Donaldson, and tried to find him in the woods.


Some of us made our very own ‘Stick Man’ by tying sticks we had collected together and used a potato peeler to take away a layer of bark to create a face. The children then really enjoyed playing with their ‘Stick Man’ in the woods, by either making up their own stories or re-telling the Julia Donaldson version. Some children in Paddington class also went a step further and created a home for their stick people in the trees.

Why not have a look in your garden and see if you can find Stick Man? I hope he’s not lost and finds his way back to the family tree, with his stick lady love and stick children three!
