English this week:
We will be continuing with our class reader "Bog Baby", this will be a cross curricular topic and using the quality text be used to enhance the children's learning.
We are aiming to describe where the Bog Baby lives using descriptive language and sequencing sentences. Everything they have learnt will culminate in the children writing a story independently.
A short synopsis of the story....
Who/What is Bog Baby? Where can I find the story? Is Bog Baby real? Where does Bog Baby live?
The Bog Baby is a truly, magical story by Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward.
When two small sisters go fishing to the magic pond, they find something much better than a frog or a newt. They find a Bog Baby. Small and blue with wings like a dragon, the girls decide to make him their secret. I won't tell if you won't...
But the bog baby is a wild thing, and when he becomes poorly, the girls decide they must tell their mum. And she tells them the greatest lesson: if you really love something, you have to let it go.
