The Scandinavian Boxtroll.

As part of our myth and legends topic work the children looked at the myths that have come out of Norway and the other Scandinavian countries.
They discovered that trolls are a big part of these countries tales, learning that they only come out at night because sunlight turns them to stone. There is a sub-species of the common troll known as the boxtroll. These trolls are notoriously shy, so they live inside boxes which they gathered from the back of large shops. They are troublesome creatures that have a passion for everything mechanical and have no understanding of the idea of ownership.
The children have made their own boxtroll and we are keeping a firm eye on them in case they take a fancy to items in school!
