We have found a whole load of picture books to enjoy during our ‘Monsters & Wild Things’ topic.
Yesterday, we read There’s a Yeti in my shed by Daniel Postgate. Afterwards, we had a Drama lesson in the hall where we imagined what it would be like to find a friendly monster hiding somewhere in our house. We had lots of ideas which we then able to use in our story writing. Here are some examples of our work-
‘When I got into my bed I had a fright. A hairy Yeti!’ Ben
‘I saw a monster! I was shocked. He was hairy and scary. It was like a giant!’ Yusuf
‘I found a Yeti in my washing machine!’ Cholan
We have also been enjoying Love Monster by award winning author and illustrator Rachel Bright. You can find out more about this book, as well as lots of other picture books, on the Booktrust website.http://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/books/31994
We might even have a go at drawing our own Love monsters!
