We have been working in Year 1 on our monster poems, and in particular, adding in as much detailed description as possible. This has been a theme throughout our work this term, using Where the Wild Things Are as a springboard for our literacy, drama and artwork. We asked the children to try and think of some original ways in which to describe their monsters. We wanted them to try and put across the emotions that our monster make us feel. Some of the final pieces of works were packed full of detail, showing a great use of some new vocabulary words. You can listen to a selection of the Year 1 monster poems being read out in the podcast below.
