Do you believe in Bog Babies?
In Forest School this term, Year 2 have been reading The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis and Gwen Millward. The story follows two young sisters who sneak off to go fishing in a magic pond where they discover a mysterious bog baby, small and blue with wings like a dragon. Intrigued, the girls take it home and decide to keep their new friend a secret.
Inspired by the tale, the pupils went on a bog baby hunt of their own, travelling down to the school ponds to see what they could find. Alas, there were no magical creatures in sight, so instead of going back to the classroom empty handed, they decided to create their own bog monsters out of clay, leaves, sticks and seeds.
