Talk For Writing: The Bog Baby by Jeanne Willis
1. “Hook In” activity - watch the video about catching newts https://youtu.be/cICVUXyouXA
Talk about their experiences of catching creatures (and yours too!)
2. Include the book by watching the opening of the video showing the author https://youtu.be/44Ds1r7PP00
(the sound isn’t great and you can’t see the text.) Then listen and look at the text https://youtu.be/nVuH4BdVQOQ
3. Imagine you caught a ‘Bog Thing.’ What would it look like? How would it move? How would it feel?
Draw pictures of your creature and write about it. You might want to use the writing frame ideas below.
Can you make simple sentences with the words you know the sounds for?
Can you sound out the words and write the words with help/or on your own?
Can you draw an illustration?
E.g. Pip sat on a pin!
There are suggestions and activities on the Oxford Owl website.
