Ashmead School

Ashmead provides its children with two everlasting things, one is roots, the other wings.

Week 2 & 3

We received a book called, "Mrs Noah's Pockets".

If you want, you can Click to listen and watch the story! 


We read the story and we decided to research some of the mystical 'troublesome' creatures that Mrs Noah wanted to save from the flood.


We have found lots of information about a Phoenix, Griffins, Dragons and Unicorns such as:

  • Phoenix tears can heal wounds.
  • Griffins can hear a mouse moving from 500m away! 
  • Dragons are known for their fire breathing powers.
  • Did you know, a Unicorn is the official animal of Scotland? 

We enjoyed looking at the mythical creatures so much, that we decided to research one as a class!

We used iPads, research notes and books to find interesting facts about a griffin, a phoenix and a hippogriff.

We learned lots of new words like menacing and ferocious which helped us to describe the appearance and behaviours of the creatures.


We also found out that the mythical creatures had superpowers.

Can you guess which mythical creature could...

  • crush rocks with its powerful legs?
  • die and then be re-born in the ashes?
  • heal wounds using its tears?
