Fairytales come true for kids
HE HUFFED and puffed but the Big Bad Wolf couldn't blow away the Ipswich Grammar Junior School's love of fairytales during their end of term celebration.
The Year 1 students dressed as their favourite fairytale characters to mark the end of a unit learning about how legendary stories came to be.
Among them was Jack, who climbed the bean stalk, Cinderella, Ginger Bread Men and the Little Mermaid.
Year 1 teacher Luke Wild said the children were enthralled by the fairytales and even tried their hand at writing their own.
"They came up with their own ideas, characters, the story, what the problems were and how to solve them," Mr Wild said.
"They love reading fairytales."
The children's parents joined them for afternoon tea under sunny skies.
