Year 1 had a parent workshop to introduce their next topic the ‘The Bog Baby’.
There were lots of activities going on including making Bog Babies out of clay, writing descriptions, reading the story, making finger puppets and Bog Baby houses. This gave us an opportunity to talk to parents and to share with them different ways to help their child with the next topic.
Later in the term, for a homework project the children had to design and make a home for a Bog Baby. They were also asked to think about the properties of the materials they had used and why they thought it would be good for a Bog Baby house. These projects were then displayed in class and used in our topic lessons.
