Term Four


The Bog Baby

This term we have been enjoying reading The Bog Baby, a story of two girls who find a tiny mystical creature in a pond in Bluebell Woods.

The story has led to some fantastic activities including creative writing, making Bog Babies out of clay and designing and making Bog Baby habitats in an old biscuit tin!


We have also had a 'visitor' who has been camping in a tent in our outside area.  His name is Winston Perriman.  Winston is a scientist who has been writing letters asking the children lots of questions in his search for the elusive Bog Baby.  The children have made documentaries in the style of David Attenborough in the hope that they can help Winston to find a Bog Baby.




We have been learning about and painting in the style of Claude Monet.  We have been adding texture to our art work by firstly using our fingers to paint and then by adding detail with cotton buds.  Don't they look fantastic!






Term Three


Send for a Superhero!

This term we have been having so much fun talking and writing about the adventures of Filth and Vacuum and designing our own superheros to defeat the Terrible Two.  I'm sure that you have heard all about them and possibly things have been going missing in your homes as they have been in school.  Vacuum has been getting the blame for the missing pencils and board rubbers in the classroom!  We have had some super homework in as well.  The collection of villains is growing.
