The children in Year 1 have been successfully combining different areas of work based around our monster poems. We have been using our literacy time to write these poems, our ICT sessions to present them on the school laptops, and our D & T time to create some scary monsters out of clay.
We helped the children to think about some of the features and characteristics of their own monsters. We wanted questions to be answered such as what does my monster look like, and what might my monster sound like?
We have encouraged all pupils to use similes in their descriptive work. An example of this might be ‘my monster is as loud as heavy thunder.’ You can listen to a short selection of our Year 1 monster poems being read out in the podcast below.
