We are starting this half term looking at the story of “The Bog Baby” by Jeanne Willis. We introduced the children to this by a drama, using physical theatre, freeze frames, thought tracking and role play. As part of this we did a Bickering game- using bickering lines for our two main characters. We developed out setting in Thompson’s park and we had a visitor who told us all about the curious rumours of the Manor House. The children got close to seeing the tiny creatures but they only out at night. After being fully emersed in the imaginary world they had created they then made up their very own creature and told us about it’s habitat and how to look after it.
