Week Fourteen 12.07.20

Week fourteen and our last week of home learning before we are all back at school together, such a lovely thought!


Our final text for home learning is one of my favourites "Bog Baby".  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.

Bog Baby is round and blue.  He has boggly eyes and a spiky tail.  He is soft like jelly and has wings like a dragon.  

Can you design your own Bog Baby?  Perhaps it is a different colour?  Maybe it will have scales or fur?  A long tail or a curly tail?  Maybe wings like a bird?

Perhaps you could label your picture of your Bog Baby or write some sentences about your Bog Baby.
