Year 6 – 17/01/20

We were all excited and intrigued this week by the mysterious stone that I came across in Gobions Wood at the weekend. Upon looking through the hole in the stone, I spotted an unusual-looking creature in the trees that only appeared when looking through the hole. After some research into this and reading about it in the Field Guide to the Fantastical World Around You, I found out that the stone is a gateway to a world full of hundreds of magical creatures. So in English this week, the children wrote persuasive posters to warn people in Gobions Wood that the lethal cockatrice had been spotted there. Today, we learnt all about another fantastical creature – the havoc-wreaking boggart – and the children imagined the mischief they would get up to if they were boggarts themselves. Here they are, up to no good:
