Bog Baby

Friday 12 January 2024

This half term, KS1 are reading Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis. In the book we meet a cute creature called the ‘Bog Baby’. The Bog baby is discovered in a Magic pond, by two young sisters. The children decide to take the Bog Baby home to look after him and keep him as a pet. At first he is very happy, He has his own home, gets to eat cake crumbs each day and even gets to go to school. But then he starts to feel scared and homesick, and wants to go back home. This week, Year 2 wrote some sentences about how the Bog Baby might be feeling. They used their inference skills to draw information from both the illustrations and text. Some of the children even used conjunctions such as ‘because’ to explain their answers. Here is some of their work.
