BOG BABY IS MISSING !!!!!!!
On Tuesday we realised one of our Bog Babies was missing. Mrs Kennedy had printed off some photos showing the Bog Baby playing in the nursery. Frankie and Siddy suggested we look on the security cameras to see if anything could be spotted.
We decided to make wanted posters as we needed help to find Bog Baby, we put them up around the school.
We decided to search outside to see if he had left any clues, we used our magnifying glasses to help us.
Searching for clues.
At the end of the session we decided to leave Bog Baby some food and Siddy suggested that Mrs Shelton looked on Facebook to see if that would help find him.
On Wednesday Mrs Shelton told us that she had searched on Facebook and found Bog Baby, he had changed his name to Bog Baby Bill. He said that he was happy but wasn't coming back yet. We discovered that all the food we had left out was gone. Mrs Shelton printed off the photos that she had found and we looked to see if he was still there.
We searched for clues outside in the garden.
After we had finished finding all the clues we decided we needed a plan to try and catch him, so on Thursday we are going to build a trap to try and catch him.
