From this, we have been looking at different pictures of monsters and thinking of nouns and adjectives to describe them.

We then designed our own monsters, thinking carefully about their key features. Look at some of our wonderful writing below:

Help at home:

Use the pictures and word mats below to think of some sentences to describe the monsters. Write some sentences about the monsters. Bring them into school to share with us.
